Cardenas Butte

More from our recent trip to Arizona...  there's still lots of images to process!

Cardenas Butte, as seen from the Grand Canyon Desert View observation area.  As best I can tell (from Google Earth) the peak on the left is about 6,000 ft above sea leave.  A mere 1,400 feet below our vantage point.  The Colorado River is behind this formation, and another 4,000 feet or so down.

Larger version here.

Another formation from the same vantage:

And a zoomed-out image showing both!  (just for reference)...

Last is an image looking west in into the canyon, with Cardenas Butte in the foreground.
