09/20/13 Biked from where the road divides to go to Francis or Bountiful. After ticking Francis continued on to Thurston. My dog Nebo did the whole thing with me
Drove up Farmington Canyon to just below the summit of Francis. From there followed the ridge to Thurston Peak.
I've been to Francis Peak several times. During my first trip, there were large snowdrifts on the ridge, that lasted well into July. I've also hiked to the top from Baer Canyon which is accessible all year.
Attempted from both Baer and Kayscreek...got distracted and didn't get there. Finally just drove up Farmington Canyon and took the short walk to the top.
