Morning light on Picketpost

Picketpost Mountain gets its name from the soldiers stationed in a military camp at the base of the mountain commanded by General George Stoneman in 1870. The soldiers nicknamed the mountain “Picket Post” due to its usage as a sentinel point to guard their camp from attacks. This military camp eventually grew into the present day town of Superior.
