Turquoise Mt. 4,400'
Thirteen miles east of Baker and seven miles north of #15 is Turquoise
The view of major Desert Peaks such as Mt. Charleston to the NE and
Telescope Peak to the north give one an orientation to the area.
NE to Mt. Charleston on center horizon.
The summit plateau is one of inhospitality

There is a profusion of mutant cactus

Fortunately the transmitters are high enough so no one

retreated from the summit within 2 minutes just to be safe.
