Red Butte (6739'/2054m) west summit

View from the west summit of Red Butte in the Red Buttes Wilderness near Seiad Valley, California.  The Red Buttes owe their red color due to the uncommon mineral peridotite.  This was taken from the west summit, as the east summit has a rock shelter bivouac at the top.  From here, one can see Mt. Shasta, Mt. McLoughlin, Mt. Eddy, Preston Peak, Kangaroo Mountain, nearby Grayback Mountain, & the Siskiyou Crest.  Views of the Klamath Mountains in both California & Oregon as well as part of Applegate Lake to the north.  Several high small lakes, which are uncommon in the Siskiyou Mountains, are visible towards the base.  Look on the ridge directly below to the south to see a white exposed layer of marble.  The east summit is close nearby, separated by a deep abyss.
