One of the most tragic incidents in Nevada concerns the terrible plane crash that killed Carole Lombard, a famous movie star and wife of Clark Gable. The crash occurred nearly 80 years ago, but fascinatingly enough, the plane crash site remains on southern Nevada’s Mount Potosi. Devoted history enthusiasts can actually hike to the site where you can see the wreckage for yourself. Be warned, though—this hike is no walk in the park. The trail is just four miles round trip, but it’s rigorous. This intense climb is a great workout for seasoned hikers and those who complete it will be rewarded with some incredible Nevada history at the end.
