When we drove to Rawlins a few weeks ago, we had to drive through the Great Divide Basin. One of the most prominent features of the landscape is the Ferris Mountains.
Here we see them with fresh snow and the clouds just lifting for the day.

According to Wikipedia, this mountain range is in Carbon County, Wyoming, and reaches a height of 10,037 feet at the summit of Ferris Peak. That sounds very high until you realize that it only rises 3,000 feet above the Great Divide Basin.
It's still very pretty though, isn't it?
You can learn more about these mountains on the BLM page.
Here's another shot taken across US 287.
