It’s good to have goals

With a friend, and former Utah resident, visiting from Minnesota, the decision was made to go dominate (I use the term very liberally here) the Uintas. Thus my friend, Karl, and I headed to Bald Mountain for some fun on Sunday. Surprisingly, not many souls were out there on such a splendid day (maybe suffering in church, dreaming of cheeseburgers?) but we didn’t let that slow us down. A quick ascent and an even quicker slamming of the burger, we made a hasty retreat, as it seemed to be cooling off too quick, but fortunately no bad weather found us. However, from there we made the ill conceived plan of attacking Kings Peak, or Gunsight Peak, or even Gilbert Peak and headed north and east to Kings Peak area, and after hiking in the dark on day one (intelligent in bear country), then getting partially disoriented and trying to wait out the lightning and thunder on day two, and getting slammed with hail on day three, we let the dream die until another day. But at least we got Bald Mountain and were able to enjoy an ice-cold beer (or two) at the Kings Trail head, drenched to the bone, after our 9 mile hike out. After all, a few days in the mountains, smelling of lamb burgers and IPA is better than days at work.
