Since 1986, Susan (trail-handle: Sierra), has organized an annual ascent of Mount Timpanogas intended to coincide with the peak of wildflower bloom. Her teams of from 3 to 12 summiteers has included an ecclectic groups of friends, family, co-workers, former classmates–2 and 4-legged alike–and is a grand Utah tradition. Disaster struck in the mid 90s, though, when Susan moved from Utah, and a 10 year drought ensued. In 2005, however, she returned to SLC, and has led three successful assaults in three years.
The last climb was July 22, 2007, and included a SummitCheeseburger feast on the 11,750 ft. summit. Fourteen humans and two dogs began the hike at the Timpooneke trail head and a full dozen of the now famous “Lamburghinis” (micro version, c/o OldBull) were consumed on the summit by 11 new Summiteers (two in the canine division) and the chef, OldBull. The flowers held up their end of the bargain, even in this, a drought, year, and Sierra has entered the Summitcheeseburger Age.
Most Cheeseburgers on one peak??????
