Identifying Sierra peaks from Fresno/valley floor

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Identifying Sierra peaks from Fresno/valley floor

Postby AaronRDavis » Sat Jul 13, 2013 3:32 pm

Does anyone know of a resource to help me with this? Living in the central valley I often admire the view of the Sierra. I am wondering if there is an image or website that helps to identify the different peaks and divides that are seen from this perspective. Thought i'd post here and see if anyone has some information about this.


edit: Something in the same vein as these: http://pantilat.wordpress.com/mountains/

I must confess that I never consulted any additional resources about this. I've just looked at my topos and worked it out. The view on those rare clear days from Fresno is stunning.
