Warner Mtn, Great Barrington Mass. Cheeseburger consumed. 1 nasty Cumberland Farms Cheese Burger

There’s an easy way and a hard (er) way to do most things. Warner Mountain just outside great Barrington MA could be a lay-up during ski season… as it is home to Ski Butternut. Grab a cheeseburger in the base lodge when the lifts are running and you could be dining in style at the summit 10 minutes later. That would be the easy way.

Of course why make it easy? Mid morning in Great Barrington is NOT a great time to try and find a cheeseburger on a Sunday. When all else fails out east you can hit a Cumberland Farms convenience store, they are just slightly less common than Dunkin Donuts. Cumby came through with one of their pre-cooked, microwaveable, cheeseburgers. $3.19 with have a half life of 5000 years. So once the deal had been done we set out to conquer our first cheese burger summit. Fellow summiteer Jeremiah wisely volunteered to man the camera after taking one look at the Cumby cheeseburger. Following ski trails and a counter clockwise circular route wound our way to the top in roughly one hour. Fall foliage was just a few days short of peak making great viewing and scattered clouds kept things cool.

Upon reaching the summit unwrapped the cheese burger and said grace. Not because of any deep religious beliefs. But after looking at the cheeseburger it seemed like a good idea.

As we plan future summits more time will be spent with the strategy of securing cheeseburgers before hand. And you can bet there will be more cheeseburger summits in the future!
