Mount Porte Crayon, in eastern Randolph County, takes its name from David Hunter Strother, also known as Porte Crayon, who painted landscapes in the Hudson Valley style and captured many impressive West Virginia landscapes. The mountain rises to 4,770 feet at "Thunder," its summit, from the west edge of Roaring Plains along the Allegheny Front. "Thunderstruck Rock" is located on the western flank of Mount Porte Crayon.
