A Lincoln County (WY) First–Round Mountain

May 29, 2007 at 3:36 pm Leave a comment

Just the name, “Round Mountain,” strikes fear into the hearts of winter motorists negotiating the treacherous terrain between Kemmerrrrrrrrrr and La Barge. The 5 mile long stretch along the north shoulder of the butte is always windswept and often snowbound. To the committed Cheeseburgersummitteer, however, Round Mountain is a summit, 7671′. Judy and Kirk had viewed this peak well over 100 times, but not until the afternoon of May 27, 2007, did they dare attempt an assault. Led by the nose of Nugget (stimulated by the scent of antelope), the trio walked a mile along the dirt two-track, surrounded in wildflowers (phlox, larkspur, a single paintbrush) before bushwhacking the final 200 yards to the summit. Three (now famous), Lamburghinis (Morgan Valley ground lamb, KGB garlic, home-grown oregano, organic Feta, oat-bran bun) were their rewards–along with stunning vistas of the Wind River Range, the Uintahs, and the Wyoming Range.
