Colorado River and Fire Mountain
This is the Colorado River as it snakes past Fire Mountain in the Mojave Desert on the Arizona / Nevada border. Taken early in the morning from an altitude of 1,200 feet (365m) above ground, this image below is the Colorado River south of Boulder City, Nevada. To the left is west and those are the El Dorado Mountains along the horizon.
This area is known as Black Canyon and was formed about 15 million years ago during the Miocene Basin and Range uplift. Black Canyon gets its name from the black volcanic rocks that are found throughout the area. On the right side of the river lays Fire Mountain, Malpais Flattop Mesa, and the Black Mountains on the Colorado River. This very clear faulted ridge-line runs alongside the Colorado River, forming the border between Nevada and Arizona.
