Fresh ground on my own private summit

Another hot, sunny, Salt Lake, summer, Sunday afternoon.  The burger was fresh ground from a chuck roast about an hour earlier and the drumming practices had just wrapped.  I, Sir Lee Bastard, put the 6 oz. burgers on the grill and then sat with Wimpy and soon-to-be Summiteer FalseBeard looking up at the Summit, Ensign Peak East, while drinking beer and waiting for the burgers to cook and for Sir Loin of Beef to arrive.  The other Summit Knight was a little late, so after the medium white Tillamook cheddar melted onto the patties, I finished constructing the Cheeseburgers and Wimpy wrapped them adroitly in wax paper.  Ketchup, brown mustard, fresh garden tomatoes, green leaf lettuce on a toasted Country Potato bun accompanied the hot medium rare fresh ground Cheeseburgers.  Four burgers and two 22 oz. bottles of Slipknot Imperial IPA went into the backpack as Loin of Beef arrived with two other fresh beef cuts in tow.

The hike started just outside my backyard fence and first crossed some of the undeveloped hillside of my lot.  FalseBeard shot ahead quickly as Wimpy and Sir Loin were slowed by the need to carry the fresh beef cuts and I, Sir Lee Bastard, tired rapidly.  The ascent was steep but without incident and soon we were looking out over the Salt Lake valley with still hot Cheeseburgers and still ice-cold beers in hand.  Newcomer Falsebeard struggled a bit with his sizeable burger, because his soda had been inadvertantly left behind, but with the prize of his first peak in sight, he labored through to success.

The Summit: Ensign Peak East/Salt Lake City, Utah.  The Cheeseburger Summiteers: Sir Lee Bastard, Sir Loin of Beef, Wimpy, and (introducing) FalseBeard.  Honorable mention, but no burgers: Two sides of Loin of Beef.
