"Dog Bone Pond"

"Dog Bone Pond"
Our informal name for this unnamed, and usually dry, basin. Part of the "inner valley" basin, which is also flooded, can be seen over the low saddle in the middle distance. Looking west; the snow-clad mountains are the Carson Range. The summit to the left is Slide Mountain, while Mount Rose (10,776 ft/3285 m) is the high point just right of center. It's the centerpiece of the Mt. Rose Wilderness area. Reno, Nevada, lies in the basin off to the right of the pic.

Fabulous and unique landscape, what are the bushes?

Thanks, Roger! The dark green scrubby trees are mostly juniper, altho there are a few piñon pines here and there. The gray-green shrubs are mostly sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata), with a sprinkling of rabbitbrush (Chrysothamnus spp.) and bitterbrush (Parshia spp.).
