Near Kayente, Arizona, is Agatha Peak. The peak is a 1500 foot eroded volcanic plug that is 25 million years old. The English designation "Agatha" is derived from the Navajo name aghaal'a, meaning "much wool". Apparently for the fur of antelope and deer accumulating on the rock. The mountain is considered sacred by the Navajo. It is part of the Navajo Volcanic Field in the Southern Colorado Plateau.
