This view of the old fort has Sleeping Lion Mountain (5,202 feet) on the left horizon with the buildings in front of Hospital Canyon and the columnar lava cliffs just coming into view on the right. The lavas are porphyritic rhyolite of the Sleeping Lion Formation, about 200 feet thick here. It erupted in a single lava flow 35.9 million years ago and is 630 feet thick at maximum. For more see Davis Mountains Vistas.
The buildings in front, formerly the enlisted men’s barracks, now house the offices and visitor center. Behind them, at and to the left of the flagpole are two bungalows that housed officers.
