Blue Wing Mountains
The Blue Wing Mountains are located at the north end of the Granite Springs Valley.
Carr states that the mountains are blue-black in collor, which explains the blue part of them. Carr further states that a granite intrusion splits the mountains in to two wings.
Black Mountain is at the peak of the Blue Wing Mountains.
On the Blue Wing Mountains is a rock with the name "C. Donnell" and the year 1946 carved in to it. This could be Charlie Donnell who hold the patent for a bucket conveyor.
