The Wikipedia article of the day for January 14, 2019 is Roxy Ann Peak.
Roxy Ann Peak is a 3,576-foot-tall (1,090 m) mountain in the Western Cascade Range in the U.S. state of Oregon. Composed of several geologic layers, most of the peak is of volcanic origin and dates roughly to the early Oligocene, 30–35 million years ago. It is primarily covered by oak savanna and open grassland on its lower slopes, and mixed coniferous forest on its upper slopes and summit. Despite the peak’s relatively small topographic prominence of 753 feet (230 m), it rises 2,200 feet (670 m) above Medford and is the city’s most important open space reserve and recreational resource. Roxy Ann Peak was originally settled 8,000 to 10,000 years ago by ancestors of the native Latgawa tribe. In the early 1850s, a sudden influx of non-indigenous settlers led to the Rogue River Wars. The peak was named after one of its first landowners, Roxy Ann Bowen, in the late 1850s. In 1937, the 1,740-acre (700 ha) Prescott Park was created on the peak’s upper slopes and summit.
