  Pinto Mountain across Round Valley as seen from Black Canyon Road.
The gray shrubs are Basin Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) and the large green shrubs are Utah Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma). Pinto Mountain is composed of Hole-in-the-Wall Tuff, Winkler Formation, and Peach Springs Tuff. In the loose rock at the base of Pinto Mountain are boulders of gneiss and schist. That would indicate to me that the basement rock under Pinto Mountain is at or very near the surface.
