Malheur Siphon

This photo was taken looking to the northwest from atop the Malheur Siphon. The peak in the near left background is Malheur Butte.
Here is a Google Maps satellite view that is centered over the approximate point where this photo was taken. Malheur Butte is visible near the upper left portion of the image. The siphon runs diagonally from the upper left to the lower right portion of the satellite image. Zoom in and you can clearly see the eight-foot diameter conduit.
