Walking up Mount Walker – A Quest for Olympic Penninsula Glory (the First Washington State Summit)

August 14, 2006 at 11:58 pm 1 comment

After an arduous journey of many miles and few replenishments we dropped John, William, and Mitch at the YMCA summer camp for troubled teenage youths. After confiscating a switchblade, a set of brass knuckles and a gross of bottle rockets, we determined that the lads were ready to interact with their summer camp brethren. With a moist cheek and a heavy heart we slowed the vehicle to 5-10 miles per hour and wished John and Mitch well as they exited the moving car while utilizing the time proven drop and roll technique. After a brief foray into the Twana Roadhouse in Quilcene, Washington to pick up 3 glorious Cheeseburgers we continued our quest. The backbone of each Cheeseburger was 1/3 of a pound of proud American beef. We then customized each Cheeseburger into: an Everything Cheeseburger for John Henry, a Deluxe Cheddar Cheeseburger for Mark and a Swiss Mushroom Cheeseburger for Leslie. Paige being of a like mind to Georges, chose to refrain from the Cheeseburger and enjoy a repast of GoGurt and Bottled Water.

It has been suggested that the peak of Mount Walker is completely attainable by vehicle, however this is a dangerous lie. Ignore the naysayers and syncophants, summiteers should be sternly warned that the road peters out approximately 20-30 feet before the true summit of 2804 feet is attained. Without a proper girding of the loins, this peak will remain unclimbed.

A hearty Cheeseburger welcome to Mark and Leslie. An honorary Cheeseburger welcome to Paige!

Mark, Leslie and John

    Welcome to an exclusive, prestigious club Mark and Leslie. I trust you’ll be resting for a few days after the supreme effort!
