This officially unnamed, tan-colored massif, which I have dubbed “Mile-High Mountain” for the elevation of its highest summits, rivals in prominence the main south ridge containing Villager and Rabbit peaks. The unobstructed eastern and southern view from its crest is probably unequaled anywhere in the Santa Rosas; it includes the entire shoreline of the Salton Sea and virtually all of the Coachella and Imperial valleys. From here, I once spotted the summits of the Sierra San Pedro Martir in Baja California, 180 miles away.
