Mountain Springs

Mountain Springs, La Madre Mountains, Las Vegas, Nevada, Agave Roasting Pits
One of the many large agave roasting pits in the area

The Mountain Springs area of the La Madre mountain range contain several very large agave roasting pits, with many of these pits located right next to each other (or in very close proximity).  They’re still very well-formed & their size and sheer amount of them indicate this was a well-used location by the ancient people.  When the limestone heats up, it turns brittle and white.
