Looking NE from North Mountain towards Lookout Mountain, with Black Mountain in the background.

   Lookout Mountain (2054 ft elevation, 626m) rises out of residential north Phoenix in this northeasterly looking view from North Mountain.  Part of the Preserve, it has numerous hiking trails and great views from the summit.  You can look back from its summit to where this picture was taken, for the reverse view.
   It is mapped by the State as volcanic rock, its composition close to in nature.  Near the base of this mountain lies one of the most amazing rock gardens I have ever seen.
   Directly behind it and faintly visible, Black Mountain looms in the distance, its top almost touching the skyline.
