A Wisp in the Black Buttes

This afternoon image, of the Black Butte’s,  was captured from the remote, and breathtaking Johnson Saddle in the Gospel Hump Wilderness of Idaho, U.S.A. The Black Buttes are an exposed, eroded, and minuscule section of North America’s largest batholith, the Idaho Batholith. When you hike along the base of those rocks, and cliffs, it is you that feels minuscule however. The butte on the left side of the image is actually hundreds of feet taller than the rocky ridge line to the right, and is capped by the now out of service, Black Butte lookout tower. Can you see it?
