Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

The high point is named Eagle Peak, with the next lower called Middle Brother and the lowest called, you guessed it, Lower Brother. Three possible originations of the Indian name cover a wide spectrum. 'Kom-po-pai-zes' is said to be a reference to a resemblance of the heads of frogs when sitting up ready to leap. However, given the Victorian nature of the times, this was named to possibly re-direct a sexual meaning that comes to mind when looking at this formation. Another was 'Eleacha', a plant used for food and the third was 'Wawhawke' for falling rocks. Your choice!
