view from Oreana Peak towards Galena Summit (the gap in the
dark brown ridgeline -- we came up the 4WD pack trail behind
that from Gardnerville / I-395 through Dutch Canyon and Lone
Pine Canyon) and the Sierra Nevada (at the horizon -- you can
see Freel and Jobs in the center, and Daggett Pass over to the
South Lake Tahoe area on the right), with the "parking lot" just
below Oreana Peak in the foreground (~50 m west of summit --
Dean's trusted Range Rover was our machine to the trail head,
where we met a few ATVs that had come up via Red Canyon :-),
and Galena Peak just at the right edge of the pic / ridge (where
we ended up driving next -- that 4WD trail is visible behind the
Range Rover, passing to the right of the dark green bushy area) (2016-11-12). Photo by Mr. L.
