Parley’s Summit – It’s a Summit!

December 4, 2006 at 10:06 am Leave a comment

The day started out with two important lessons that I thought should be shared.

1. If you leave your car door open overnight, the overhead light will drain your car battery.

2. If you can’t successfully balance a coffee drink on the roof of your car (at 30 mph), Starbucks will replace it at no charge.

With our lightning fast start we drove up to Summit Park – to find the Great Western Trail and to follow it to the peak of Bald Mountain. But this didn’t happen. We began well, with a straight-up-the-hill bushwack through scrub oak. When we finally found the trail, we took a wrong turn and found ourselves hiking to Jeremy Ranch (oops, wrong direction!). After correcting this, we wandered around until we arrived at Parley’s Summit. We tried to find a trail to Bald Mountain but the foot of snow and lack of a trail map prevented progress on this front. We were content to bathe in the glow of a forest of cell phone towers and eat an ice-cold Carl’s Jr. Famous Star Cheeseburger.

A fine bushwack back down to the car completed a beautiful little morning hike.
