Verizon service in DV: Where is the tower?

While in Death Valley for Easter week I was surprised to get Verizon cell service in the valley. I had coverage from Salt Creek to at least Morman Point, with areas of very good to poor signal stength along this corridor. There was also a spot along the Scotty's Castle road near Mesquite Springs campground where I had very good coverage for a few miles, then nothing on either side.
The last time I was in Death Valley, there was no coverage at all, so the tower must be of recent construction. Does any one know where the cell site is? Based on my travels during the week, it might be in the southern Panamints. Any ideas?
