Peace and Parley’s Peak

April 19, 2008 at 7:23 am Leave a comment

To fill in a gap in their Salt Lake area Summit Cheeseburger map fryingelvis and sirloinofbeef decided on a short of ascent of Parley’s Peak. Wimpy was brought along for his mis-navigation skills. The peak is most easily accessible from Devonshire Ave. It ends at a rock painted with a large “H” (for Highland High School). We immediately walked past the trail to the summit, traversed around the peak to the south where a short climb up the southeast ridge brought us to the summit. Parley’s Peak is just a small bump on a ridge off of the more considerable Perkins Peak – I guess it’s named because the USGS used it in their survey of the area (see markers in photos). Before eating burgers on the summit we ascended the ridge in hopes of finding an undiscovered peak for wimpy to conquer. We reached a knoll with a stone peace symbol where wimpy enjoyed a McPeace burger. If it’s ever named we’ll give him credit for this one. We all descended back to Parley’s Peak, ate our Cheeseburgers and continued down to the car. A short hike was turned into a long trip by the Salt Lake City Marathon. No, we didn’t run it, but had to drive around it to get back home. An enjoyable start to the weekend!
