This view of the dome is obtained at mile post 14, altitude, 8,500 feet. The granite sentinel guards an entrance to South Cheyenne Canon, and is one of the best known mountains in the west.
Its exceptional symmetry is at once apparent. The slopes are covered with a dense foliage of spruce and pine, while the top or dome is solid granite. It is a popular picnic resort.
A trail leads to the top of the dome, from which a magnificent view of mountains, canons, cities and plains may be obtained.
