Kuna Peak 2009


Interesting Facts & Highlights


This peak name is rooted in the Shoshonean word Kuna, meaning 'fire', however the local Mono dialect is closer to 'fire-wood.' Named in 1882 by William Johnson, a cartographer working with Israel Russell. In 1976 the US Forest Service claimed that the peak was incorrectly marked on most maps and proposed to move it 1.5 miles southeast, and shows correctly on the 1978 Mono Craters 15' quad.
