Hillside Letters

Mountain monograms, hillside letters, letters on the mountain, whatever you call them they’re pretty common in the west. They started in 1905 with C for California Berkeley and U for University of Utah, then the Y for BYU in 1906 and it quickly spread to many, many Universities and High Schools adding letters above their city or town.

Growing up in Utah the hillside letters were very common, I decided to start another list here for the letters I come across.
