On a beautiful November day (Wimpy’s Birthday), I (Esterlinkage), Sadie (Farting Wonder) and new member Molly (Old Lady) summited what is perhaps the most daunting peak in the Wasatch Range, Parley’s Peak. The peak is named for famous Mormon pioneer Parley Pratt and is most notable for the large H (for Highland High School) painted on a large rock sticking out of its flank. After our grueling ascent (the trail is quite steep for the first hundred yards), we reached the summit in approximately 15 minutes. Once at the top, we all enjoyed a bone dry McDonald’s Cheeseburger and the smells and views from the peak. Molly (Old Lady) is 12 and 1/2 in human years but given her weight of 60 pounds this puts her age at approximately 80 dog years (see calculator below), so please join me in welcoming the oldest Summiteer!

    I couldn’t get the graph to show up. Wikipedia refs should work.
