Where Is Mummy Mountain of Arizona?
Mummy Mountain is a distinctive mountain extending luxuriously in Paradise Valley of the USA. Mummy Mountain consists mainly of Precambrian Granite sediment.
The lovely slopes of the Mummy Mountain incapsulate residential Paradise Valley estates and homes; however, the upper summit areas of Mummy Mountain are mostly natural conservation mountain preserves. As the only part of the Phoenix Mountains not held within the Phoenix Mountain Preserve portions of Mummy Mountain are formally protected by the Mummy Mountain Preserve Trust and the Paradise Valley town.
How Mummy Mountain Was Named In The 1940s?
The Mummy Mountain originally was known as "Windy Gulch" and "Horseshoe Mountain"; but was later renamed by a miner businessman Charles Mieg. In the 1940s, Charles Mieg purchased most of the Mummy Mountain Property for only $12,000. Charles Mieg saw that the Arizona Mountain's profile resembled an Egyptian Mummy lying down. Thus, he sold and marketed his parcels of Arizona mountain land as "Mummy Mountain" Arizona property for sale.
