I live near Preston and love it when something about my "home" mountains comes up on this site.
Flattop is an unnamed but very prominent mountain east of Smithfield. It dominates the Bear River ridgline in front of Elmer and Jardine and actually obscures these two slightly higher peaks from the valley. it is west of Elmer at the top of Smithfield Dry and Birch Creek drainages. Approximately 1 mile west and slightly south of Elmer with marked elevations of 9539 on the north end and 9515 on the south. Matt Durrant is my son and we plan to climb Flattop soon. You really should write a book! Love you thoughtful and descriptive prose and pictures.
