Buzzard Rock(s) has to be right up there with the most common names for peaks in the eastern USA. Along with Stone Mountains and Rocky Mountains and Pine Mountains and Green Mountains, etc. and etc. We even have a local Buzzard Rocks on the hike up to King's Pinnacle! They're everywhere!

Yeah, someone had a lot of imagination. I found something like 6 or 7 Buzzard Rock/Rocks in Virginia alone. Almost as creative as all the peaks in the West named Thunder/Electric, etc.

Shenandoah National Park also has two mountains named Blackrock, two Lewis Mountains, and Rocks Mountain, Rocky Mountain, Rocky Mount, and Rockytop!

Buzzard Rock is also not to be confused with the more often visited Buzzard Rock in the nearby Massanutten Mountains.

It's all rather confusing, yes.

And one of Virginia's Fivers is also called Buzzard Rock. (I put it on my Whitetop Mountain post, since I don't think it qualifies as a true summit.)

Peaks with "buzzard" in their names always appeal to me. I've climbed Buzzard Peak and Buzzards Roost in PA; Buzzard Knob in MD; and Buzzard Rock, Buzzard Rocks and Buzzard Hill in VA. Maybe I'm King of the Buzzards?

You could probably spend several years trying to hit all the Buzzards across the country!

Especially here in the South. So many repetitions!

And here in the South it seems particularly bothersome. Deep Gap. Green Knob. Sharp Top. Rocky Mountain. Etc., etc.

Then there are the places with extremely unique names. On Sunday I climbed something in Virginia called "The Blue Ball." I just happened to see it on a map, did a double take, then vowed to climb it. Then I climbed nearby Buzzard Hill on the way home...
