The Avenues Twin Peaks-The Winter Ascent

April 23, 2007 at 4:18 pm 1 comment

We began the morning at our traditional spot of the Starbucks at 15th and 15th. Patrick arrived looking chipper and ready for a challenge. After a short wait, Paul showed up looking rather the worse for wear. He sheepishly announced that he had come just to tell us that he wasn’t going and that it was unlikely that Chuck would even show up. It turns out that they had been enjoying multiple alcoholic beverages until 3:30 in the morning. We begged Paul to join us, but to no avail. Switching tactics, we argued that he had picked out the hike and that he was the only one who knew the way to get there. Foolishly, he eventually agreed to accompany us. After concluding that Chuck was a ‘No Show’, we drove to the trailhead for the Avenue Twin Peaks. The trip to the first peak was quick and uneventful. At the peak we each enjoyed a 1/2 lb of organic ground buffalo meat, mixed with lots of chopped garlic, spices and Worcestershire sauce. Finally topped with a healthy slice of swiss cheese, ketchup, mustard and a lovely toasted bun. All three of us struggled to finish our wagon wheel sized burgers, but persevered. It was a short hike to the second peak and I proudly pulled out the second half of our meal. An identical wagon wheel sized burger for each of us. Looking rather green, Paul managed to mumble that he was going to be unable to eat his burger. Patrick and I quickly determined that Paul’s new name for the rest of the hike would be Nancy. Nancy seemed rather nonplussed by our banter and chose to remain demurely quite. The remaining two Cheeseburger Summiteers ate the burgers quickly only stopping to critique Nancy on her complete lack of gastro fortitude. Sadly, Nancy’s inability to eat two hamburgers and Chuck’s No Show caused us to return to the trailhead with 3 leftover Cheeseburgers.

    John’s quick wit cranks into gear a mere 4 months after hiking the peak. Maybe a combination of two Cheeseburgers and Perrier have affected John’s ability to use a computer. Please see in a previous post that both Chuck and Paul had completed Avenues Twin Peaks.
