looking for Meridian, but finding T1N Peak 11/10/2007

With the usual laser beam like accuracy, SirloinofBeef and Wimpy spent a Saturday morning wandering amongst the hills between Ensign Peak and the border of Davis County.  The original goal was to start at the Ensign Peak Memorial Park Trail Head, skirt Lookout Mound, continue past Ensign Peak (5282 feet), then flank the Radio Towers on the way to City Creek Peak (6150 feet).  We would then cross through Hell Canyon and over Meridian Peak (5978 feet),  on the way back down to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Thus completing an elegant loop and adding at least two peaks to the SummitCheese website.  The debate as to what was City Creek Peak, Meridian Peak or just about any other peak began almost immediately.   Limited by a paltry two Cheeseburgers for the entire summit team, we made a tactical decision to concentrate our burger eating efforts towards Meridian Peak.  After crossing over what may or may not have been City Creek Peak, we continued through Hell Canyon and onto the broad ridgeline just north of the string of Radio Towers dotting the hillside.   Finally settling on what we figured was most likely Meridian Peak we began scouting for a benchmark.  We quickly located a benchmark (see photo) that carried an inscription for Tin Peak from the Salt Lake City Corp(huh?).  Realizing that we might or might not be on Meridian Peak, but most certainly on some peak we decided to enjoy our still warm Microwaved Kirkland Signature Premium English Muffin Breakfast Sandwiches-made with fresh english muffins, grill cooked egg patties, 2 slices of 100% naturally aged sharp cheddar and just a whisper of BHT, BHA free Canadian bacon slices.   As we sat there enjoying our delicous meal, my mind harkened back to 1972 when Herb Peterson, and his assistant, Donald Greadel, the operator of the McDonalds Santa Barbara franchise introduced the Egg McMuffin to an eager fast food audience.  After our brief but delightful meal, we continued down the broad ridge to a rock outcropping.  We were delighted to find yet another Salt Lake City Corp Benchmark, marking Sand Peak.  We then backtracked a bit to connect up with the Bonneville Shoreline trail and finally back to Ensign Peak Memorial Park.

    I think that Tin Peak and Meridian are one in the same.
