A Trail of Two Summits (Boston 10/02/07)

October 3, 2007 at 12:26 pm 1 comment

Boston is a city rich with history, and much of that history can be enjoyed by following the Freedom Trail – “a 2.5 mile red-brick walking trail that leads you to 16 nationally significant historic sites, every one an authentic American treasure” … and a couple of them on hills, as luck would have it.

 At one end of the Freedom Trail is the State House, the oldest building on Beacon Hill (elev. 100′). After a brief wander through the streets behind the State house, we found the high point of the hill amongst multi-million dollar townhouses and enjoyed our Wendy’s Jr. Bacon Cheeseburgers. This was Karen’s virgin summit cheeseburger, the 2nd for KrustyBunz, and the first Massachusetts summit recorded for the cause.

At the other end of the Freedom Trail is the Bunker Hill Monument, a tribute to the 2nd battle of the Revolutionary War fought on the site on June 17th, 1775, a battle lost by the American’s, but at a far greater cost to the British. Our assault on the hill resulted in only two casualties – a pair of $12 cheeseburgers from the IronSide Grill consisting of an angus sirloin burger with lettuce, tomatoes, caramelized onions and goat cheese (fries included, but mostly discarded due to the previous cheeseburger). As it turns out though, the battle of Bunker Hill didn’t take place at Bunker Hill, it took place at Breeds Hill (elev. 80′), and that is where the Bunker Hill Monument stands, and that is where we enjoyed out second summit cheeseburger of the evening.

Total to date: KrustyBunz (3), Karen (2). Watch for more reports from New England as these new Revolutionary Forces take more “summits” in the near future!
