MONUMENT RIDGE, the table-like mountain on the horizon, derived its name from rock monuments-like the one here-built years ago by sheepherders to mark boundaries of their grazing lands. Two can be seen on the slopes of the far ridge.

In its rush to join the Imnaha River, HORSE CREEK drops nearly 5000 feet in the 22 mile-long canyon below.

Tributary streams of the (illegible) Snake River have caused this high tableland to be cut by deep canyons.
