After picking up a burger and an 'almost' burger we hopped in the car and drove the 2.9 miles to the Shell station that perches atop Whisky Hill A little GPS action and we figured out that despite the higher appearing planter bed to the west, the summit, all of 33 feet high, was located right in the middle of the gas station entry way. It was there I munched my yummy cheeseburger and my daughter ate her cheese-no-burger while taking in the view as the road slopes down to the city's elevation of 13 feet.
What a beautiful day for a hike! Blue sky, yellow aspen, warm enough for shorts in October Hitting up Cardiff Peak was almost an anti climactic after Superior. But, by the time we got there i was hungry again and my second burger of the day was just as delicious as the first. As Sierra and I lounged in the warm sun atop Mount Superior we realized we had internet service and checked out other possible peaks we could bag
Cardiff peak, which we passed on the way in looked a lot easier than Monte Cristo and we could still get two summits in one day. Two other hikers arrived and we said our hellos and started talking about how our partner Refski was on his way to Monte Cristo and his 2nd cheeseburger summit of the day We explained the Cheeseburger Summit website to them and they pretended to be interested. We then looked over at Monte Cristo again
