[pct-l] RE: correct pronunciation of Tahquitz

Correct pronunciation is the later, tah-keetz.  Started climbing there
in the late 1960's.

Since we're on the subject:

I've hear a couple of versions of "Tahquitz" (PCT Section "B", above
The most often hear is "TAH-quitz".
Though I've heard another, from a Native American, as "tah-KEETZ",
which, to me, has a more authentic sound and cadence to it.

Does anyone know what Tahquitz means, and what the correct pronunciation

Given it's location over the Devil's Slide trail from the PCT at Saddle
Junction to town, I'm inclined to believe it means: "It's a butt kicker
going down, too..."
