I got the Blues again…

How much fun can I cram into one beautiful Spring day? Well… today, May 17th 2008, started with about 6 hours of volunteer work at a Habitat for Humanity build site, then I was off for a spin on my motorcycle to one of my favorite little scenic roads in the Blue Hills Reservation, where I met up with a friend for a hike, and for dinner enjoyed not one, but three summit cheeseburgers!

First… introductions: Peg has been itching to join me for a summit cheeseburger for the past month, so we met up at a trailhead in the Blue Hills (where you may recall this multi-cheeseburger feat). She brought her dog, Ilse (ELL-sah, but I prefer to refer to things that small as “it”), and at various points during the hike she had to carry the dog up and down steep parts of the trail. Whenever I see someone carrying around a small dog, the image of Paris Hilton comes to mind… Hilton… Stilton… Blue Hills… Blue Stilton!… Paris Stilton!! … and that’s why Peg will now be known as Paris Stilton! ๐Ÿ™‚

We set of on a short hike up the Skyline Trail to the summit of Buck Hill where Paris Stilton and I each enjoyed a BK Jr. summit cheeseburger and a nice view of the Boston skyline. (I paid for bacon, but I couldn’t find any on any of the cheeseburgers I ate.)

From there we backtracked to our vehicles, collected another two cheeseburgers from our stash and followed the trail in the opposite direction. Paris Stilton announced that she was full and that I would have to eat both the remaining cheeseburgers. “At least there are only two left” was what I was thinking. We got to Kitchamakin Hill where I ate summit cheeseburger #2 and then turned back towards the start.

The trail up had taken us near the summit of Fenno Hill (which apparently is so insignifant that it just gets a passing mention as Fenno Peak on the topo map but doesn’t merit its own listing anywhere), so on the way back we bushwacked our way to what appeared to be the summit and I shoved cheeseburger #3 into my mouth.

The trip back down presented us with this nice view of the Blue Hills…

… and so concludes a beautiful Spring day.

Totals: 3 Summits, 4 Cheeseburgers, 1 new hiker, and 1new dog for which there is no cheeseburger small enough for it to consume in its entirety, so all it got today were a few dropped onions and a lot of exercise (relative to its size… for us it wasn’t much hiking actually).

Coming soon… a summit cheeseburger from Scotland!

    You must really like those Cheeseburgers since you’re always eating 3-5 on a trip. Man, that’s gotta hurt. Glad to see that you’re kicking off the spring/summer hiking season with a triple bagger – I’m inspired to go out and enjoy a Cheeseburger soon.
