Maxwell Cone or Bald Mountain is a low eminence rising out of the plain at the south foot of the Turkey Mountains, in northeastern New Mexico. The last mentioned mountains form a rather conspicuous circular ridge of high hills having an even crest. These mountains are situated about 30 miles northeast of Las Vegas and about 20 miles east of the Rocky Mountain front. The vast even plains stretching out to the eastward of the Rockies in this region is a part of the Las Vegas plateau.
