If you are new to Arizona Place Names you may want to take a moment to read the About Page to get an idea of what this blog is about and what I am trying to accomplish. Thanks, Peggy

Cactus Pass, AZ

Cactus Pass

Mohave Co.

Hinton Map, 1878; Smith 1879

Pass through Cottonwood range on Hardyville-Prescott road, west of Cross mountain.  Wheeler was here January 30, 1855, and says:  "From the peculiar vegetation, we give it the name of Cactus Pass.  We can look easterly through  it and see the bulk of Cross mountain and the Aquarius range.  The pass is a deep gorge in a high range of granite mountains."
