Point Lookout & Saddle Knoll-2peaks (4burgers)/hr

November 14, 2006 at 11:24 am Leave a comment

What would be a better dessert for a breakfast at Hell’s Backbone Grill than a buffalo/asiago/summitcheeseburger–two to be precise–for Kirk and Judy atop Pt. Lookout (9495)in Garfield County, UT on October 24th? How about two more summitcheeseburgers an hour later on Saddle Knoll (7064) between Torrey and Bicknell!
There’s a bit of a mystery about the position of Pt. Lookout, designated on many maps and the Utah summit list, but dwarfed by a towering 9500 ft.peak, designated “Steep” on both a 1956 USGS map and the survey marker at the summit (burgers consumed on the latter). Regardless, they both offer stunning views of the Canyons of the Escalante, Navajo Mt, and the WaterPocket Fold.
Neither impending rain nor the Rifle Range for the Wayne County Search and Rescue beneath Saddle Knoll could stop this expedition–two new summits, 4 more summitcheeseburgers, and a new member of the team….welcome, Judy.
