6D Cuyama Peak (LO)

Location: Santa Barbara County, California

Named for the nearby Cuyam arroyo cited in 1824, and for the (1843, 1846) Cuyama Ranchos. Either from a Chumash Indian word "kuyam" which means "clams", or from nearby rancherias shown as "Cullama" and "Cuyama" on disiños of the land grants.

"Cuyama Mountains" were mentioned by Parke (1854).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
