Espanto (Terror) mountain is a cute little range a couple of miles long in the middle of Rainbow Valley. Biologists say it has it's own little ecosystem and is used by larger mammals as they travel between the Estrellas and the Maricopas. It is also just north of the Butterfield stage and I've found evidence (steel core from a .50 cal. armor piercing round) that it may have been used for WW2 training. I also read that it was known for having raves and it shows signs of being a popular lead flinging place. We have found only a handful of petros, but we keep looking. It has been fenced off for a couple of years and fairly well cleaned up. Truth be told it's not an awesome mountain, but it's ours and it serves us well.
