Flat Top Mountain

Flat Top Mountain seen from the south ridge of Mount Elmer. This is perhaps the most appropriately named mountain in the Bear River Range. The north side of the summit plateau is only a few feet higher than the south side giving it a flat appearance from every angle

It really

does look like its top has been cut off. Wow, dramatic.

Re: It really

Thanks! I’m not sure what happened when Flat Top Mountain was formed millions of years ago but it must have been dramatic. It is one of the most recognizable mountains in the range.

Hello, mountaingazelle...

Of course I have a comment. Looks
like somebody had a very large
chainsaw. Perhaps they wanted to
play cards OR eat their dinner.

You might want to become acquainted

Have a nice day, Melinda! I always love
looking at your wonderful photos!

Re: Hello, mountaingazelle...

Thanks! I agree, it must have been God's Chainsaw that took the top of the mountain away. It reminds me of Kessler Peak in the Central Wasatch.

There are avalanches that come crashing down the north face of the mountain each year. It is named God's Lawnmower

Yes, I have used Tanya's website before and have actually hiked and climbed many of the canyons and peaks she has listed. A lot of good beta and photos she has in there.

Melinda ?

BETA is a four-letter word! I have to
GOOGLE that one.

You have an interesting way of describing
things. I think you could possibly ...
offer some advice or kind words to Tanya?
Think she's having a TOUGH time getting
some ALBUMS put together. I MOST certainly
believe she has enough PHOTOS, however.

How is that LAKE EFFECT SNOW coming???
Take care of yourself & thank you!!!

Re: Melinda ?

Beta is just another word for useful information in climbing terms.

I haven’t actually submitted any albums myself. There are a lot of them on SP. For Tanya, I suggest making an album for Zion Canyons and Zion Peaks and maybe one for the Coyote Buttes Area. Then she could attach her photos to it.

Okay ....

Take care of yourself. Is there any snow falling there, at all??? My parents live in
the Tooele Valley; I need to contact them. I don't have anything against snow -
I have shoveled it many times in n. Utah.

I'm assuming a lot of people will be dusting off their skis. Thanks mountaingazelle, I'll
PASS the information on to Tanya. Cheers!!!
