Thanks for the vote.



Actually, Dean is the one who gave me the page. He said that he already had too many pages to take care of and that he thought I should have the Deseret Peak page instead.



I'm thinking of trying a winter ascent next year.

I like the fact that you are so informitive of the lesser known Utah mountains. Excluding the fact that this is a Utah county high point.I think that this page is great.Good job!

Thanks for the vote, Travis. What can I say, I like climbing mountains especially the lesser known ones that aren't climbed much.

Nice dog-friendly mountain, and a very good page :) I just added a tidbit about the origin of its name.

Thanks Larry, I think TOO-HILLY would be a cool name. Tooele is an odd name for a city but it isn’t the weirdest in Utah. I thought you might like this video.

Thanks Larry. I wish I knew more about flowers and plants and what they were all named. I’m still learning to identify flora in the Rocky Mountains so I probably can’t help with that.

Of course they included the beehive on the Utah flag... we’re the Beehive State. I read your article and heard about the disappearing bees on the news. I’m sure many people are worried about this. Bees not only produce honey but help pollinate our plants.

I think a lot of Utahns would be upset if Jello disappeared. I mean, how would people live without it!

Thanks Larry. I would like to hike more in the Stansbury Mountains when I have time. Davenport Canyon looks like a neat place. The mountains located west of the canyon are unnamed and around 8,600 feet elevation. The map shows a trail up Davenport Canyon that goes to a spring passed some old mines.

Farther to the north is the Northern Stansbury Mountains Wilderness Study Area. There are no maintained trails and this is why few people come to hike here. The highest point in that area is Onaqui BM which is 9,143 feet. These mountains seem to be just a rugged as the peaks farther south but lower in elevation.

The gate for South Willow Canyon doesn't usually open until Memorial Day or later in the year. You could park near the gate and hike in from there. A good map is the USGS quad for North Willow Canyon. You could also look at online maps from MyTopo or Terraserver to find what you are looking for.
