The view of Area 51 from Tikaboo Peak, 26 miles away. You can see the fuel tanks in the south, the water tanks on the slope of the Papoose Mountain Range in the background, and various buildings and hangars, including the huge Hangar 18 and the Red Hat hangars in the north. The two runways are also visible in the foreground, partially hidden by Freedom Ridge. This ridge offers a much better view of Area 51 from only 12 miles distance, but unfortunately it was declared off-limits to the public by a land withdrawal in 1995.
