North of Yowiye is a magnificent dome which rises two thousand feet above the top of the fall, and four thousand six hundred feet above the valley. It resembles a cap of liberty and bears that name. It is also called Mahta and Mt. Broderick. This dome is shown in the photograph as it is seen from the west at a distance of a mile.
