MERIDIAN MOUNTAIN. Meridian Mountain (elevation 2,250 feet) is a limestone peak at the southern edge of the Edwards Plateau north of Camp Wood in far southwestern Real County (at 29°43' N, 100°01' W). It is so called because it is crossed by the 100th meridian. Local forestation is characterized by open stands of live oak, Ashe juniper, and mesquite on the ridges and uplands and live oak and Ashe juniper woods on the hills and escarpment.
