The Rincon mountains provide the backdrop for some beautiful pictures. Pictured in the background of this photo is Rincon Peak which is 8482 ft. in elevation. During the winter months this peak will be snow covered. Rincon is Spanish for corner, denoting the primary shape of the mountain range. Mica Mountain (8,664 feet), the high-point of the Rincons forms the apex, with Rincon Peak (8,482 feet) forming the southern point, and Tanque Verde Peak forming the western point of the corner. The interior of the corner is Rincon Valley (south and west of Mica Mountain).
