    There's a Spook Hill in Socorro County, New Mexico in the foothills of the San Mateo Mountains. I kind of always wondered if it was racist or if it just meant more "kind of spooky" as in scary. It's listed as such on the latest USGS and US Forest Service maps. I did a USGS breeding bird survey there between 2004-2009 and it was actually named "Spook Hill Priority Block" due to the name of the small peak located there.

    In general New Mexico is much less racist than other places I've lived (Oklahoma probably being the worst).
