Landscape Scenes of the Granite Mountains

View from east face of Granite Mountains, San Bernardino County.   The Van Winkle Mountains are to the right, and are small, with the Marble Mountains further to the south, south of I-40.   The Providence Mountains are east and northest of the Granite Mountains, and higher too. Cima Dome can be seen to the distant north-northeast and the Kelso Dunes due north.   The Kelso Dunes and the Devil's Playground is the lower end of the Mojave River.   This is greener then the Granite Mountains have been in a very long time.   The following photographs were taken along the Al A. Alanson Trail, which is on the University of California Preserve, used for research purposes only.

Jay Sullivan thinks he is ducking below the view of the camera to get out of the way of my landscape shot; however, I meant to capture him in the photo.
