Mount Potosi from Miles Away

Mount Potosi is about thirty miles southwest of Las Vegas and is easily visible from many places in the city. The mountain has seven full-power FM broadcast stations up there and is notably the crash site of TWA Flight 3 which had the actress Carole Lombard aboard when the aircraft crashed into the mountain on January 16, 1942 due to pilot error. Mount Potosi also has a Boy Scouts camp high upon the mountain. The Mountain Springs Pass is nearby allowing crossing of the Spring Mountains to points west and north such as Pahrump, Nevada in Nye County as well as Death Valley in California.
