The vista offers a breathtaking view of Mammoth Lakes' siganture skyline, the Minarets, which are part of the Ritter Range. The sharp, jutting spires of the Minarets are dramatic and unwordly. Also seen are Mount Ritter at 13,157 feet (4,010 m) and Banner Peak at 12,945 feet (3,945 m), the two tallest peaks in the range. The vista is also a popular spot for stargazing. In winter, this may be accessed via cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.
