Buck Point (6,433 ft.)
Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1962."
- HPS Summit Signatures
"More than one hundred geographical features in California are named Buck -
almost as many as are named Deer. The word appears mainly with Creek, Mountain,
and Peak. Since the name was often used as a nickname, or to designate an
Indian man (in contrast to 'squaw' - both terms are now considered derogatory), not all such names refer to a male deer or antelope. There are a number of
Buckhorn Creeks and Flats, and Lake Co. has a Bucksnort Creek."
