I've never said it lacks vegetation. If I understand it right you're saying mountains should be completely surrounded by the same kind of vegetation. That's not true. You agree that shot from the biplane was pointing to the upper right corner of the map. Okay. So that mountain on the right (biplane pic) is Mt. Alamo. (Back of Mt Alamo around that corner link, see the lighthouse pic). Depending on the vertical slope of the terrain and some vegetation don't pullullate. Mt Zancudo, Chilliah, has less vegetation than Mt Alamo. The images from the river between Mt Alamo and Mt Zancudo show that the Est side of Mt Zancudo could be quite vertical. (link) Zancudo river would circle Mt Zancudo. So Zancudo river and that river would debouch rather close; not too close. And Zancudo river would have a small basin near Sandy Shores in my opinion.
That small town from RockstarNiko pic can't be Salton Shores. I can't see how it could be it in any map made till today. Sorry. Mt Zancudo and Zancudo river would be totally different. Where would be the back of vinewood hills with the vineyards? In Trevor trailer there's a flat landscape on the left of Sandy Shores sign. (link)
No. They are the same as you pointed. Back of Mt. Zancudo: link

I never said that. You said about vegetation. The problem we have same places looks vegetated differently from different distances because of draw limit i think.
Also i did not agree with RockStarNiko's placement. I think Sandy Shores is to the east of that place more close to the satellite dishes, maybe to the northwest of them. Just behind the Alamo Sea, and the huge mountain in the shot with sign is south side of mt. Alamo.
Here i made a rough collage of northeast of mt. Zancudo:
