You know, a fellow tries to tell a stupid joke around here and people take it 
serious. Notice the 2300 time stamp with the link?

But I still like Rock Dancer's answer. :-)

The view is taken from a spot to the East, I don't think it's from near I-95 
since the highway is about 30 miles from the mountain. From the view I think 
it's about 10-15 miles from the mountain.

The main features from left to right:

Baxter Peak with the Knife Edge pointing to the camera. Chimney Peak is the 
eastern terminus of the Knife Edge, visible almost directly below and a little 
to the right of Baxter Peak. (The Table Land is not visible, so no AT).

The long ridge from the highest point to a low point then goes to the summit 
of Hamlin Peak, a 4000 footer. The flat ridge continuing from Hamlin is called 
Howe Peaks.

At the very far right is a summit that looks in line with the others, but it's 
not. It's South Turner Mtn, on a ridge parallel, and closer. South Turner is 
just N of the Roaring Brook campground in Baxter SP.

BTW, you are looking into 2 glacial cirques here. The one formed between 
Baxter and Hamlin is called the Great Basin and contains Chimney Pond with the 
cabin & camping. The next cirque is composed of Hamlin and the Howe Peaks, 
called North Basin. Parts of Hamlin & the Howe Peaks wall are rock-climbing 
areas. Parts of the Great Basin and used for Winter Ice-climbing.

Hope that helps. --RockDancer

walked on it!)
