Incredible, ZJ -

Question #1:
How do you make your images appear so LARGE on the TR page?

Question #2:
I see you have Yard Peak 'labeled' as "hiking." Is there any
'ice climbing' in the Uintas, or is that limited to the Wasatch
(mainly Provo Canyon)?

Question #3:
Is ANYBODY in your mountaineering/hiking group familar with the
Oquirrh Mts [between Tooele & West Valley City?] (Has anybody
heard of a Levette Peak, just to the south of Barneys Peak?)

Your Yard Peak TR is simply INCREDIBLE!!

Hi Larry,

Thanks! I haven't heard from you for awhile and wondered what the heck happened to you.

1) I use center and size medium. I tried manually changing medium to large in the text to see what would happen, but that didn't seem to work.

2) I don't do ice climbing myself and have never heard of anyone doing so in the Uintas.

3) I'm only familiar with the Oquirrhs south of Butterfield Canyon and have done all those over 10000 feet. You never hear of anyone going to the Oquirrhs. It's like they don't exist, but they are really quite nice. They look very dry and barren but when you get there are actually lush. I looked on the map and found Barneys Peak but nothing labeled "Levette" Peak. I did find a "Leavetts" Canyon SW of Barney Peak. There were several unnameed peaks, the closest to Leavetts Canyon was 7989.

Thank you! That computes with my research. Yes, my parents live in
Tooele, and told me the reservoir in Settlement Canyon is full.
With the population of Tooele growing so fast, they really need
the water. (Either that, or buy bottled water.) Nice page, ZJ !!
