3.29.2021~The 1942 Carole Lombard Crash site. This somber trek Included Peaks 7,461’, South Mt. Potosi & Mt. Potosi Highpoint. 11 miles, 4,500’ gain, 5:03hrs. My 2nd time here in 2 days. I wanted to come back alone and drop from the main ridge to find the crash site. I did all 3 peaks again since I was already up there...I Had to trudge down snow, mud & cliffs to get to reach the site.....What a horrible and tragic event. The plane almost made it over the mountain and was just about 400’ from clearing it. What a cold & lonely place for those 22 souls lives to violently end too soon. Her fate was decided by the flip of a coin when she tried to decide whether to take a train for fly. She and her Mother died. At least the were together. It’s been 79 years but I can feel the vibe of death. Rest Peacefully to all who perished. It happened the year my Mother was born. She’s gone too. It was a physically and emotionally taxing day.
