Deerhorn Mountain

You are looking at the wide-angle view facing south from Bullfrog Hill. Deerhorn is the big twin-peak mountain in the center. It has two enormous arms reaching down to the north, towards the camera. The one on the right is West Vidette, and the huge triangular one on the left is East Vidette. You might notice star trails in the sky, this is a long exposure shot made at night, using sunlight reflected off of the moon. The curvature of the star trails shows that the camera is facing due south. Unfortunately it was a windy night, so the trees are blurry from blowing back and forth.

Now, when you brush your teeth in the morning, would you rather look at this, or at your self in the mirror?
