So many lovely nature shots over the last few days. Love the sailfish FLYING high in the sky!

Is there a 'monk' that we can see? I've never figured that one out.

Where I grew up in CT there is a 'mountain' called Sleeping Giant-has anyone else heard of it?

Camelback is indeed a landmark for much of Phoenix and Scottsdale. We have a similar view from our offices. And, as you know very well, from our Scottsdale/Paradise Valley home we have a view up the camel's a**.

I love this mountain. This is a great photo of it.

I remember going to The Last Laugh years ago and a comic saying "Phoenix is so hot a camel came through once, sat down and said '#&^% this. I'm not going any farther.'"

I'd know that shape anywhere. Nice shot from up high.

Great shot! I love all the comments. Dave is a hoot. It is funny to see Camelback Mtn out right in the middle of the valley floor.

Great shot, Sharon. Many is the year I've contemplated Camelback.

How interesting to see the natural icon next to the modern high rise. I think I prefer Camelback.
