Picacho Peak is one of the most recognizable landmarks in southern Arizona with its unmistakable shape and height along a valley between Tucson and Phoenix. In this story we learn about the geology and ecology of the place and also address a bit of its history. It includes a Civil War battle and a stop by the Mormon Battalion in 1846 on its way from Iowa to California, in what has been described as the longest military march in U.S. history.
