Provo Rocks

Rock Canyon is a prominent feature of the east side of Provo, Utah. A hike up this prominent rock point, called Squaw Peak, is one of the most popular in the area. A similarly named peak in Phoenix, Arizona was renamed out of a wish to honor a dead soldier and for political correctness. According to the Geographic Names Information System of the USGS, there are about 60 such points in the United States with the same name.
