Extent of the Shawangunks

There are many significant features that can be viewed from this location. First, the extent of the Shawangunk mountains can be seen. Second, brachiopod fossils can be found on the rocks at the summit (see fossil section).  Lastly, there are fractures emitting cool air from the inside of the mountain which records the average annual temperature for the region (See cold air crevasse section).
