Unfortunately, the reactor training facility is located in Idaho Falls, Idaho. 
If we accept that Twin Peaks is 12 miles from the Canadian border (from Cooper)
then Twin Peaks is ~100 miles closer to the ocean than it is to Idaho Falls,
and Twin Peaks is definately not a 'nearby' resort town to Idaho Falls.  Too
