Cathedral Peak Appetizer – Quealy Peak

September 23, 2008 at 7:51 am 1 comment

My apologies for the late post – this “ascent” occured before our idiotic ascent of Cathedral Peak. Flyingpelvis and I were driving from Salt Lake City up to Pinedale, WY and decided we needed to explore a summit within striking distance of the highway. In Kemmerer, home of the J.C. Penney motherstore, we stopped at an Arctic Circle for a pair of Cheeseburgers. Please note that we used the drive-thru and did not step out of the car.

A few days earlier I had explored Google Maps for peaks near Kemmerer. Quealy Peak was a few miles out of town and a road appeared to run all the way to the top. As we approached the road to the summit, we came up to an opened gate which displayed the sign below.

Is That for Me?

I did mention that the gate was open, didn’t I? And what does “authorized” mean? We certainly weren’t un-authorized. The last half mile of road led to a radio and phone tower-studded peak – we probably could have reheated the burgers using radio waves. We drove to the summit, and without getting out of the car, enjoyed a summit Cheeseburger. Imagine our pride at achieving a Cheeseburger summit without abandoning the comfort of four-wheeled transportation!

Quealy Peak Money Shot

The descent was as difficult as the ascent, but soon we were back on the highway to Pinedale for our date with Cathedral Peak. Unfortunately, we could only drive within 19 miles of Cathedral Peak and would have to hike the rest – ouch!
