This photo popped up in the Patterson Irrigator and was reported to have been taken just outside Patterson (west Central Valley) city limits. In the photo what appears to be Half Dome is visible in the center.
I say appears to be because in all my life living in the Central Valley I have never seen this. In fact, I was under the impression that Half Dome, not one of the tallest peaks in the Sierra, was in fact hidden from the Central Valley by other peaks in front of it.
I know my Dad said he had photos from Lick Observatory of Half Dome and Professor Leubke at Modesto Junior College also had one. But I find this strange. Anyone?
Garry, do you have any thoughts?
