SENTINEL DOME.

Three quarters of a mile southward from Loya is the Sentinel Dome, or Loyemah Dome, 4,150 feet high. It is hemispherical in shape, and is next to Starr King the most regularly formed of all the peculiar dome-like peaks about the valley. The summit can be reached on horseback from the east, and the view is very extensive. From this point the profile of the South Dome, and the moraines of the Toloolewack cañon are seen to more advantage than from any other.
