Sunrise Mountain

Sunrise Mountain

Sunrise and Frenchman contain Vishnu Schist, some of the oldest rocks in North America, at their base. These rocks date back about 2 billion years in earth’s history. This rarely climbed peak gives one the best birds eye view of Nellis AFB. On the north side of the base resides Nellis AFB Area 2, formerly known as Lake Mead Base. This location stores many nuclear weapons.
