  California, Mono County, County Ponds
Photographed 5 October 2013.

The brown hump in the left middleground is Black Point, a surtseyan volcano. The snow covered peak in the center is Mount Warren, with Lee Vining Peak at left, and Mount Gilcrest at right. The broad plateau below Mount Warren is a likely relict terrain from the relatively recent Sierran uplift. I have heard it called the “Warren Bench.” However, GNIS does not supply a name for this feature, but does recognize a “Warren Bench” to the south, just west of Big Pine, California.
