Black Mountain Open Space Park

At a family reunion in La Jolla, it was time to take a break from the beach and bag a cheeseburger summit.  I was able to convince my sister-in-law Mari and doggy Boo to accompany me on my adventure.  With record heat in southern Cal, and even hotter away from the coast, it was a bit of a trudge to the top; in fact Boo was resisting and decided to hang in the shade partway up.  But Mari and I made it, and enjoyed the yummy Jack-in-the-Box cheeseburger on top with a great view of San Diego County.

Spanish Fork Peak

I was pretty stoked about last week's CBS so I decided to do another one this weekend.  Picked Spanish Fork peak because it looked like it was well away from the madness that is Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons on any given summer weekend.  Spanish Fork Peak did not disapoint.  Its about an hour south of SLC and the trail is well marked, if steep, all the way to the top (nearly 6 miles. ) Saw only 6 other people the whole day.  Also saw lovely views of American Fork Twins and Utah Lake.  

Kings Peak

For my 60th Cheeseburger Summit I bagged Kings Peak.  Not sure what can possibly top that.  

Cave Mountain Cheeseburger on a Summit

Another summit conquered. We hit the trails on June 25th for this one andI think we could have cooked the cheeseburgers on a rock that day.

 

Pilot Butte

Happened to be in Bend and happened to have some free time.  Was hungry too.  What to do??  Yes, you guessed it.  Cheeseburger summit.  A quick stop at Bend Burger to get the goods and off I went.  Pilot Butte sits in the middle of the city and is very popular with the locals who like to stay fit.  One can drive to the top (like I did) or if you want a nice 2 mile hike you can walk up.  At the top there is a plaque in the middle with the names of all the other peaks you can see from Pilot Butte.  You can see Mt Hood, 92 miles away.  Pretty cool.

Wade Mountain

It appears that summitting cheesburgers is gaining momentum in the heart of Dixie! On Saturday, January 31, 2009 a group of 21 geocachers banded together to climb Wade Mountain on the north end of Huntsville, AL in Madison County. I had turned cheeseburger summiting into a geocache event (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=d1fd278d-0ab7-42b...) and that interested a few nuts!

For those taking the most direct route up and back it was a little over five miles round trip, with a change in elevation of about 750' . For those who could not turn down the opportunity to find just one more cache, well that group made this a 7+ mile extraveganza. We did break up and come up in groups. The first group to the top were our summit chefs(Keymaker and Vesole), who packed campstove and suppply to make their own burger up top! Later came ClarkBowman and The_Rebel, then David, ParrGolf, and Rick618. The rest of us arrived in one big wave including VolCachers, ToisRUs, cbianca, chrisiris, HaresEar, KD4DCE, momentforus, snoopy dog dee, wayne_etc, and myself..... Heres's a few pictures of the whole affair!

Waumanona Mound Cheese Burger

Southern Geocacher's Association had a great time at their Waumanona Mound Cheese Burger Event. Not the tallest of peaks, but some great history here. The museum here contains Native American artifacts dating back over 10,000 years, arranged in chronological order from Paleo to Historic periods that are all related to this area. The event was atended by Myself, Clarkbowman, The_Rebel, Catching Cacher, Blugras and Will2003. Thanks for the fun and here is to many more Summits and a Cheeseburger. This event took place 09/03/2009

Elephant Rock

Since Elephant Rock is only 3 miles from Seven Sisters I took my time getting there.  Had to let the first two burgers digest.  But an hour later I found myself at Elephant Rock, ate my last burger and headed back to the hotel.
