Mount Van Cott (6,348 ft.) – Into Thin Air … with a Cheeseburger

June 30, 2006 at 8:49 am Leave a comment

The Friday before a holiday weekend is always a special day. Is there a better way to start such a day than with a Cheeseburger summit assault? Of course not! The trail was poorly marked and obscured by undergrowth; the summit loomed above the Heath Sciences parking lot; the glare of the hot summer sun blazed over the ridge; but the team was not discouraged and confronted the mighty Mount Van Cott.

It was a fine hike; and as it turned out … a legitimate hike. The trip included double track, single track and bushwhacking (of course). We enjoyed the sight of several “Sego Lillies”. The early morning sun across the Wasatch range was as beautiful as ever. We enjoyed, courtesy of John, Buffalo burgers with Swiss cheese and mustard. The roll is as difficult to describe as it was to chew, but the entire experience was most enjoyable.

We welcomed a new Cheeseburger summiteer, Ralph. Welcome Ralph. – Paul, John, Ralph and Patrick.
