CRAWFORD MOUNTAIN. Crawford Mountain, with an elevation of 1,470 feet above sea level, is six miles west of Palo Pinto in Palo Pinto County (at 32°47' N, 98°22' W). It was named for A. G. (Al) Crawford, who settled just north of the mountain on the Brazos River. The surrounding slopes are surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, cacti, grasses, and mesquite.
