Hart Mountain 2012 — photo 62 of 88: A 22-photo, 270-degree panorama of the Warner Valley, this third time taken at an even lower elevation of 5,075 feet, from Hart Mountain Road, as it makes its steep descent down the western face of Hart Mountain, about four-and-a-quarter miles northwest of the Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge headquarters.

There's a lot to see in this photo! Starting at the very left, you can see Hart Mountain Road winding down the valley rim, with parts of Hart Mountain looming in the background, and stretching away south. Moving to the right, the next thing you see are the snow-capped Warner Mountains to the southwest. Continuing right, the next mountains to be seen are the Coyote Hills and the dark-golden-colored Rabbit Hills (due west is between these two sets of hills), with the Upper Campbell Lake in the foreground, and Flagstaff Lake behind it.

Continuing right, Campbell Lake dominates the scene, with the 6,679-foot Juniper Mountain standing alone in the distance, about 27 miles to the north-northwest. Next, over the rocks in the foreground, you can make out part of Stone Corral Lake, and the dark cliffs of the western face of Poker Jim Ridge in the background. Finally, in the very right-hand part of the photo, you can see more of Poker Jim Ridge and an upper part of Hart Mountain Road, which I had just driven down. April 2012. Camera used: Sony Alpha α77 with Sony Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens. Scroll to the right to see the rest of this panoramic photo.
