Mammoth on mountain
If you use your imagination, you can make out the outline of a mammoth with a long trunk and short legs. The building on the top of the mountain is the gondola station and restaurant at the ski resort. Mammoth Mountain, like many of the other mountains nearby, is an ancient volcano. Much of the rock in the area is pumice from early eruptions.
