Black Mountain (elevation 3398 feet, 1036
meters) rises a mile (.6km) or so behind some homes in the immediate foreground.
Perhaps nowhere else in the Valley displays such strong contrast between
rocks (on the left) and (on the right) as well. The town
of Carefree is to the right of the mountain, as is The Boulders
Resort. The older community of Cave Creek, with its bars, restaurants, and night
spots is behind this peak, on its north side.
