A domed, rocky formation on the banks of the Salt Fork of the Brazos River. It is striated colorfully, and makes a gorgeous silhouette against the pinks and blues of the setting sun. In the days when plains indians roamed freely across the untamed prairie, they would camp in the lee of this important landmark. Today, one may find bits of flint and broken arrowheads at its bottom. Nearby, there are abandoned copper mines, where it is rumored that bootleggers set up and operated their stills. In the early 1900's it was said that if you went to Kiowa Peak, "you ain't comin' back". Now that it's not suicidal to venture there, the Peak affords one of the most impressive views of the Salt Fork and surrounding countryside in existence.
