Yellow House Peak


Yellow House Peak is twenty-one miles northeast of the Persimmon Gap Ranger Station in east central Brewster County (at 29°50' N, 102°53' W). At an elevation of 3,365 feet above sea level, the yellow butte rises 600 feet higher than Dove Mountain Road, one mile to the south. Its shallow, stony soils support oak, juniper, and some mesquite.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
