Craggy spot just below the South Summit of Mt. Jefferson
Nevada

We paused for a minute while I took this panorama.  Thunder clouds were brewing, but the lightning hadn't started yet.  By this point we realized that we weren't going to have as much time at the top as we'd have liked.  A bummer.

All the same, the view from this point is pretty hard to beat.  The summit was so broad that the view is generally limited to which ever side of the summit we were standing on.  This point proabably afforded a better view.

The summit, at just under 12,000 feet, is just a bit to the west of due north.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
