This view was taken just after leaving Golden Gate Canon. To the north about eight miles is Electric Peak, the highest mountain in this part of the Park, whose summit it 11,125 feet above the sea level. A great deposit of mineral renders the surveyors transit well night impossible when on the mountain. Its name is derived from the peculiar electrical display from its rugged peaks during a thunder storm. This is a sight witnessed by only a few. "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, * * * What is man that thou art mindful of him?" In the foreground of this picture is our own company outfit.
