Low (6348 ft.) Hanging Fruit

December 9, 2006 at 6:08 pm 2 comments

Saturday, close to lunchtime, thoughts of a Cheeseburger…..and then I remember the new house rule: the only Cheeseburger is a Summitcheeseburger. 15 minutes later, two bisonburgers capped with aged Vella Sonoma Jack cheese nestled between homebaked buns are sliding into the daypack, Kirk and Judy pile into the ancient Subaru and hit the trailhead. True, Van Cott was not a “new” summit, but the approach was the dreaded Southwest route. Within minutes of the peak group leader Judy, showing the zeal of a committed Cheseburgersummitress, pioneered the now famous west ridge finish–bushwhack/deer trail–delivering us to the summit unscathed. A bit breezy, but the view was a great complement to the meal.

    Well, a Saturday sneak attack! Weather permitting Perkins will be payed a visit tomorrow. Remember – Cheeseburger is always capitalized.

    BTW – Judy and Kirk have already been awarded the coveted white Cheeseburger icons for their efforts.
