What is this, knowledge by popular vote??? Sorry, it's Rosalie!! And that's Bandit Peak to the left. There is most definitely an alpine area (the part covered with snow). The krummholtz consists of staggered groves of bent and twisted alpine fir and Englemann spruce that take advantage of slightly protected area up to 10,000 or even 11,000'. But that's okay, Mary, men know everything.


You are just sooo Wrong, the op's original picture does not show a mountain with a summit above tree line!

Do you ever go by Will-O-Wisp? Check it out sometime.

Here's the proof that it's Windy Peak. I went on Google Earth and did a screenshot of the mountain, then I took the OP's photo and put them side to side. I didn't have quite the same angle, but I think you can see the commonality and the ridge at the top right.

The trees go almost all the way to the top. Only the tip is above treeline because Windy Peak is about 2000 feet lower than Rosalie, which can't be seen from WOW in the first place. In the picture, the lower part of Windy Peak is shaded by clouds, and the upper portion is in sunlight. Those are still trees in the sunlight, not snow capped Alpine terrain.
