    Probably the wrong forum section, but I wasn't sure where it belonged.

    The yellowish mountains wallpaper found on the iMacs on display and MacBook: where is that? I searched and all I could find was that the file name was called cirque (mounatin?) which isn't very helpful. Anyone know?

    ALL it says is that is called cirque. I am asking WHERE that mountain actually is. Google was no help either.

    I don't think its Mt Fuji. Isn't it in America. I've wanted to know the answer for some time, but I never thought to post. Funny thing is no one in the Apple Store knew either.

    It's not Mt. Fuji, it's a cirque somewhere. Maybe in the Pyrenees?

    Do you mean Mac OS X Lion wallpaper? It's Mt. Fuji volcano in Japan during sunset.

    Nope. Snow Leopard. Yellow Mountains.

    They're referring to cirques in snow leopard.

    I tried to give the answer in a post earlier. It looks like somewhere in the Pyrenees.

    The mountains are in Canada's NW Territory. They are a cluster of peaks and sheer walls of granite in the Nahanni National Park Reserve, which is within the Mackenzie Mountains, named The Cirque of the Unclimbables. Hence, the photo title Cirque in OS X.

    Looks like the grand Teton to me... Think I've stood at the spot where it was taken from.
