View from the top of Mt. Whitney
I must admit a few things have gotten in the way of my enjoyment of barbecue lately. For one, I have been training to hike Mount Whitney (the highest mountain in the lower 48) for the last couple of months and this has caused me cut down on my barbecue consumption. Yesterday was the big day and I am happy to say that our group was successful. We reached the peak, roughly at around noon, after hiking for nine hours (yes, we started hiking at 3am). Climbing up the mountain was definitely the hardest part of the hike; coming down only took seven hours. In the time that it took me to complete this hike I could have barbequed up some kalua pigâ€¦ what was I thinking?
I didnâ€™t find any BBQ restaurants in the city of Lone Pine, which was close to our camp, but we did snack on some K.C. Masterpiece BBQ potato chips. I have a BBQ restaurant review for Barn Burner Texas Barbeque coming up, so stay tuned.
