Picket Post Mountain

Picket Post Mountain

Now a popular hiking destination just outside of Superior, this prominent landmark was originally called Tordillo Mountain, the peak was renamed in the 1870s after the Army established the Picket Post camp nearby. For a time, the Army operated a heliograph station on the mountain, using mirrors to signal other outposts.
