    OK, so here's another way to approach this stuff.

    Who can name the spot? And who wants to post their own artwork for us identify?

    Sounds fun! Not sure if this is right but Half Dome?

    It's near Yosemite, but much higher than either of those...

    Nope. Banner is volcanic/igneous. This is granite and quite a bit further North. I'll post and answer an a photo in a day or two...

    No need. I didn't mean for this to become a treasure hunt.

    The lake is Crown Lake. The peak behind it is a ridge that comes out of the back side of Slide Mountain...

    Here's a photo

    I assume this thread is not one item at a time like the others. This is by my wife's grandpa. We have it hanging in our living room. Anyone recognize the peak? It's one of my favorites but I haven't been on top.

    Nice. Corona was my first guess, but then I thought it had more of a hump on it like Rainbow. But no canyon below, of course.

    I got one for you. I have no idea where it is. But would love it if you guys knew. It was given to be as a gift. My friend Paul's dad painted it.

    It reminds me of Zion but I don't think it is.

    I'm going to guess Navajo Mtn for Nick's.

    blueeyes' reminds me of Cathedral Valley, except for the river running through it.

    Nope, but you can see Navajo from this mountain.

    Nick it kind of looks like Bull Mtn in the Henrys.

    Close, but no. It's the view of Mount Ellsworth from where my wife grew up. She lived in the double wide back behind all those houseboats in the bottom center of this Google Earth shot. The one looking out over the wash.

    The painting might be from a slightly different angle. We think he used a photo given to them from her parents to paint it.

    Oh well, at least I had the right range. Cool place to grow up.
