7G Alamo Mountain

Location: Ventura County, California

Named after trees found in this area. Before the name "Alamo" immediately brought to mind the Texas rallying cry to remember the famous battle of 1836, it was a Spanish word for Poplar trees (Populus augustifolia).

It is a common place name particularly in dry arm of the Southwest where it is both a landmark and an indicator of water.

Name first noted in the Ventura Free Press (1883).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
