BALD EAGLE MOUNTAIN
BALD EAGLE MOUNTAIN. Bald Eagle Mountain, so named because a nest of eagles was discovered there, is located near Ovalo in southeastern Taylor County (at 32°10' N, 99°48' W). Its elevation is 2,276 feet. The soil in the area is a combination of limestone, claystone, and sandstone, and shrubs are the only noticeable vegetation. A dirt path runs up the peak. A gap on one side suggests a former mine.
