Panorama Point – No Charge

Have you ever considered that admission to a National Park can be as much as $25 while admission to the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. is free? Well, to some people this makes no sense at all. But today we ate a Cheeseburger on a summit in a national park – and didn’t have to pay a dime!

Our three families took Friday off to make a long weekend and traveled down to Teasdale (Wayne County), located near Capitol Reef National Park. We stayed at the wonderful Pine Shadows Cabins. Responsibilities were divided among various family members – breakfasts and dinners were prepared by one family and shared with all the others. Patrick volunteered to bring Cheeseburgers for all on our summit hike.

So on Sunday morning as we prepared to visit the park for a hike to Hickman Arch and a summit attempt.  Patrick decided it was finally time to find some burgers. We all followed Patrick to Torrey, stopping at every possible store looking for Cheeseburgers. Who would have thought that you couldn’t find Cheeseburgers in southern Utah on a Sunday morning! Good thinking, Patrick.

We continued into the park and went on our hike (nice) and then drove to Fruita to set up a picnic lunch. By now it was past noon so we made a dash back out of the park to visit Brink’s Drive-in – which was now open, yeah. Cheeseburgers, each with a rasher of bacon, were ordered up. Burgers in hand we ventured back to the park, found Panorama Point, and enjoyed a still warm Cheeseburger (and cold milkshake) while taking in the tremendous view.

Warm Cheeseburger, beautiful view, wow.
