It's time for Where in the West again! For the August 2009 version of WITW, we have the above unknown area located somewhere in the west - that would be somewhere in the western part of North America. The two photos show a mountain, seen from both the north and the south. I'll leave you excellent geologists, geographers, and other players to determine north v. south from slope aspect effect: these photos were taken within a day of each other.
Where is this mountain, what is its name, and why would I bother to take a picture of it (other than that I seem to take pictures of everything - no fair using that as a reason!). Another good question to consider: is this mountain an example of an erosional, depositional, or tectonic landform?
