Big Mountain-High Point of the Mormon Trail (8,472 ft) August 11, 2007

Mark (SafetyMan) and Wimpy met FlyingElvis and Jesse outside of the 15th and 15th Starbucks at 5:30 AM, Saturday morning.  Not able to procure any coffee that early, we piled into two cars for the 30 minute trip to the trailhead.  From the Big Mountain Pass (~7420 feet in elevation) off of Route 65, we took the well marked trail past the communication station and headed steadily uphill.  This is a well marked trail with switch backs easing the apparent grade.   We soon arrived at the unremarkable peak, but were pleased to see very remarkable views of the surrounding Wasatch Mountains.  On the peak, we each enjoyed a Carl’s Junior Famous Star Cheeseburger.  Congratulations to SafetyMan for his first Utah peak and his third state with a Cheeseburger Summit!  After a moment to chat and digest, Patrick and Jesse continued westward for a day of bagging peaks (Sadly with no accompanying Cheeseburgers). Mark and I beat a hasty retreat back to our car, so that we could get SafetyMan on the road for his car trip to Oregon.  While Big Mountain is a unremarkable peak, it is steeped in Utah history and has tremendous views of the Central Wasatch Range.
