If the name of the place has “Hill” right in the name… it must be on a hill, right? And if you get to the top of the hill, then you must be at the summit! I couldn’t find a topo map detailed enough to show me the elevation of Parliament Hill in Ottawa, but based on Google Earth, it appears to be 282 feet at the summit.

I guess I spent too much time researching and talking about having a summit cheeseburger on Parliament Hill, because by the time I got around to going at lunchtime on Saturday, they had called out the military to protect Parliament Hill from my planned assault!

But despite the presence of Canada’s 125 year old armoured regiment (yes, that’s the Canadian spelling of “armored”), I was able to sneak around the defenses and reach the summit of Parliament Hill with my cheese burger from the Cock and Lion Pub.

Let’s see… Beacon Hill, Parliament Hill… I see the start of a new sub-category for summits! I’ll bet the security is a lot tighter on Capital Hill than it was on Parliament Hill though.
