Thumb Butte from a Different Angle


One great advantage of being a mountain biker is that you get to see the backcountry and the awesome views therein. Here is Thumb Butte from "behind." In order to see it from this angle you must find the trail that takes you around a bend and Lo Behold - your eyes are wandering about the scenery rather than focusing on the trail itself. This is a panorama shot, which works great for the mountain range.(If you click on the picture, you'll see an enlarged version of the picture)

A great view, I would be afraid of running off the trail.

I know what you mean Jim - I have run off the trail before by accident while being taken by a scenery - This is why it is important to wear a helmet :)

Thank you kala. One picture is definitely worth "thousand words."

From this photo of Thumb Butte (posted Jan. 6th) you can see another huge set of mountains in the background. Are those the San Franscisco peaks from up in Flagstaff? -- or are those too far away to see from Prescott?

Hey mjo2go, I think you are so right. I really think the faraway mountains are the San Fransisco Peaks. Good Eye!

Thanks Karoliina. Such a beautiful view! We're from Wisconsin & have visited Prescott twice & are looking to return again next summer. Hopefully we'll do some hiking this time.
