About The Picacho Peak

These etheral mists lend a sense of mystery to this southern Arizona landmark situated between Phoenix and Tucson, near Highway 10.

"Picacho Peak and the surrounding park is known for its unique geological significance, oustanding and varied desert growth and historical importance.  The unique shape has been used as a landmark by travelers since prehistoric times.  One of the first recordings was in the 1700's by the Anza Expedition as it passed through the area."  information appropriated from www.desertusa.com
