Sepulcher Mountain

Sepulcher Mountain © John William Uhler - Yellowstone National Park

Perhaps the local disinterest in the Sepulcher Hill name [a hill in Mammoth Hot Spring behind the Mammoth Hotel containing a small cemetary] is due as much to the fact that there is a prominent feature nearby which is officially known as Sepulcher Mountain (so-named by the Barlow Party of explorers in 1871 because the south end of its ridge had the appearance of a tomb, as seen from Mammoth Hot Springs), and two similar names in the same vacinity was too confusing. Anyhow, "Kite Hill" sounds better as a place for the kids to be on a windy day!
