The First California Peak, Mount Tamalpais – July 22nd

July 26, 2006 at 5:55 pm 1 comment

Located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County, Mount Tamalpais at 2,571 feet above sea level provides a panoramic view of the bay area. Our ascent party began the assault in the parking lot just below the east peak. The temperatures were in the high nineties and the enthusiasm of the ascent party (Adam, Conner, Nicole and John) was sorely flagging. However, the thought of delicious ‘IN-N-OUT Burger’ Cheeseburgers kept us moving. After several hundred feet of a nicely constructed trail, things changed to a brutal path of broken rock and dirt. This normally wouldn’t be a big deal except that half our ascent party was wearing flip flops. Once again the thought of delicious ‘IN-N-OUT Burger’ Cheeseburgers pulled us forward and upwards. Finally, after almost a third of a mile we reached the summit and the ranger’s station. We each enjoyed a fine repast of ‘IN-N-OUT Burger’ Cheeseburgers and sodas with Conner taking the prize for rapid consumption of a double Cheeseburger. Nicole adroitly exploited a loophoole in the official Summit Cheeseburger rules by eating almost her entire cheeseburger but then feeding the final scrap of bun to Tessa ‘The Summit Dog’, thus meeting the requirement that the entire Cheeseburger be consumed on the summit. This loophole will be fixed. Congratulations to new Summiteer’s Adam, Conner and Nicole! Photos to follow. John
