Nice page! Looks like an Elk Range peak! Great job and have a good one!
Nice little page. Nice pictures of a mountain which looks much lower than it is.
Nice page. I've been meaning to go back and hike this peak since I saw it from Delano last fall. I'm glad you did a page on it.
Good page, well done. I didn't know Utah had any major volcanic areas.
We have a couple of peaks named Belknap in Oregon - Do you know the origin of the name? Ours are named for members of a mid nineteenth century pioneer family.
Hi, this page was tranfered to me a few months ago.
Anyway, to answer your question:
I didn't know Utah had any major volcanic areas.
Utah has many volcanoes, but these (Tushars) are very old and don't resemble volcanoes that much.
There are other areas in Utah with many more and recent volcanoes in the West Desert. Some are only a few thousand years old and have very recent craters. One very interesting volcanoe out there is actually made of white lava and looks like a snow-peak in the hot desert from a distance. Some mirage.
the links at the bottom of the Belknap page are broken.
Thanks. I'll have to check the other pages too.
From Beaver to the sign for Big John's Flat plan on 35 minutes. From there to the TH (our odometer read 10.2) plan on 50 minutes. In addition it might be a wise thing to call about the availability of the road to Big John's Flat. It's usually not open until about July 1st and it can be closed in the fall due to seasonal weather and the discretion of the Beaver Ranger District. Their number is 435-438-2436.
