An Olympic Feast: Mt Olympus S. Summit, SL County, Utah, 10-28-07

The Utah Yeti (as in Big Feet–aka Lise) was so enamored with the Lamberghini she consumed on Mt. Timp in August, she organized a group assault to the South Summit of Mt. Olympus, 9026 ft, that graces the eastern slope of the Salt Lake bench. Her team of 13 bipeds and 3 canines began the mid-morning ascent, but after the grueling 4000 verticle in 3.5 miles, only 8+1 could enjoy the 360 degree views of the Wasatch and the Valleys below. In addition to Lise, veterans of the Timp adventure included, Dave (anytime but early), Susan (Sierra), and Kirk (Old Bull), accompanied by the virgin Cheeseburgersummiteers, Jake (Bruny), Ulrich (Ubster), Fred (PM), Matt (Butcher), and his faithful Puck (Totebag).
The smoke from the SoCal fires made the view less than spectacular, but that disappointment was quickly forgotten with the meal that ensued. A dozen Lamberghinis and 15 Swiss/Danish (Gruyere and Dill Havarti) bison Summitcheeseburgers were warmed in the skillet on the stove both hauled to the peak by the Ulster (aka Ulrich) and washed down with the ambrosia (aka Budweiser–a single can for the team–also toted by Ulrich, who was obviously tolerated for more than his navigational skills). This intrepid group of Cheeseburgersummiteers was far from alone on the popular peak and two more willing souls were able to enjoy our bounty: Richard (Grizz) and Scott (Snowfl8k) were quite amused by the mission statement and quickly signed on (l’aroma de Lamburghini is a fine perfume).
A fine fall day and some fine food made this a memorable summit:
Jake (Bruny)
Ulrich (Ubster)
Lise (UtahYeti)
Dave (AnytimeButEarly)
Fred (PM)
Kirk(Old Bull)
Puck(Totebag)–canine division
