Peak 2 of 3

Camelback Mountain

 

The second installment of our Peakbagging Series is Camelback Mountain:

Camelback Mountain (O'odham: Cew S-wegiom) is a mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. The English name is derived from its shape, which resembles the hump and head of a kneeling camel. The mountain, a prominent landmark of the Phoenix metropolitan area, is located in the Camelback Mountain Echo Canyon Recreation Area.

History Bit: A cave discovered on the north side of Camelback mountain indicates that it was used as a sacred site by the prehistoric Hohokam Culture before they abandoned the area in the 14th century.

Peak Bagging?  What??

Peak bagging, also known as hill bagging, mountain bagging, Munro bagging or simply bagging, is an activity in which hikers, hill walkers, and mountaineers attempt to reach the summits of a collection of peaks, usually those above some height or prominence in a particular region, or having a particular feature.
