Thurston Peak ID-07Is there a better way to spend the Fourth of July?
Myself and three other people drove up the treacherous (no, it isn't as bad as I have heard) Farmington Canyon and parked at Smith Creek Lakes.
**the road in Farmington Canyon is narrow, and has lots of exposure, but it is possible to get a passanger car up to Francis Peak**
On the way up, we bagged two peaks that had geocaches on the summits, and headed to Thurston.
The flowers were showing thier colors, still being cool enough,(there is even a bit of snow left up there).
On the way up, we also grabbed two unnamed lesser peaks, grabbing the geocaches that were on top.
Because Thurston is a 'twofer' (two counties share the highpoint) it was my 4th and 5th one. I am almost - almost half way done.
