Location: On the Pamir Plateau, Tajikistan
About the sandwich:
Well Folks, we kept it simple for our lunchtime picnic in Tajikistan. This is somewhat stale bread, unrefridgerated tube meat product (we think or hope beef but cannot read Russian). I would like the record to show that adding tomato paste was also an option, but I opted against – I really wanted the simple experience.

It tasted pretty good. Being surrounded by mountains always makes eating a sandwich feel special. I think this is because you feel productive and accomplished that you’re both in awesome nature, and you had the foresight to put together a picnic for yourself. But I’ll be honest, my biggest motivation for eating this sandwich is that we ate a Snickers bar afterwards.

The “Sticky Gothic”

Almond butter with St. Dalfour's wild blueberry jam on two slices of dense and seedy danish mountain bread.

From: Elliott Hoppe
Location: Gothic Basin, North Cascades, WA
About the sandwich:
This sandwich was carefully crafted the night prior by combining almond butter with St. Dalfour’s wild blueberry jam on two slices of dense and seedy danish mountain bread. So dense was the bread that the sandwich in my pack nearly broke my back the next morning. After an early start and a long drive we started up one of the most beautiful and steep hikes I have ever completed. Once at the top I vivaciously dove into my sandwich with a side of avocado and washed it down with a swig of fresh alpine snowmelt.

It was a fantastic way to fuel a weekend of many firsts: double-decker sandwich, volcanic summit and ski-off.

The “The Nisqually Cheesefall”

 

Better Cheddar bagel, then add cream cheese (the good stuff) to one side, three slices of mozzarella, half a roma tomato, and half a ripe avocado

About the sandwich:
Ski mountaineering in March isn’t for the faint of heart, and neither are the heart stopping qualities of this decadently cheesed climbing fuel. Start with a Better Cheddar bagel, then add cream cheese (the good stuff) to one side, three slices of mozzarella, half a roma tomato, and half a ripe avocado. Perfect for long bits of front pointing or warming up at a belay, the fat content of this sandwich really shines for rapid adding of cold weather insulation. It also delivers a hefty calorie load in a relatively indestructible package suitable to your messy climbing pack. Layer up, chow down, and hop turn to your heart’s content.

We had a killer day skiing in the mountains as you can see and it was just made better at lunchtime as this sandwich exceeded all expectations!
It made me feel complete

About the sandwich:
Far from Australia it was hard to decide, was it the thought of French food, a tasty baguette filled with brie, lettuce, tomato and ham or the thought of hiking through the French Alps that drew me to Chamonix? I decided it was both.

The “Pow Day”

The bread: home-made multigrain loaf, with yuppy but yummy ingredients like millet, quinoa and flax seeds. The filling: mango jam smeared on either interior sides of the bread slices, ham, sharp cheddar and arugula.

About the sandwich:

 My fingers were numb as I wrapped my hands around this sandwich-it was -20C out. But this meant that the snow was fluffy, so how cold the sandwich was a reminder that the skiing would be excellent! I was feeling pretty cheesy being thankful for things like health and good company.

About the sandwich:
On a late evening hike just after the summer solstice, the sun still shines on the opposite side of Lysefjord. This rectangular sandwich matched the formidable block of Preikestolen quite nicely. Although this hike often crowded in summer, the view is inspiring and worthwhile.

About the sandwich:
Roast beef, provolone, lettuce, tomato on white bread.  The Seven Sisters are in the background. We stopped half way up to the top of Domier Peak to have lunch.  I was enjoying the view and the sandwich so much and then realized, maybe I should capture this moment.

The “HCA on Carruthers Peak”

Location: Carruthers peak, Snowy Mountains, Australia
About the sandwich:
Perfect weather for the Main Range Walk, started at Charlotte Pass and did the loop anti-clockwise. Stopped for lunch at about 12:30 at the top of Carruthers Peak. The sandwich was pre-made in the morning and consisted of ham, cheese, avocado, home-grown mizuna and roquette and seeded dijon mustard. By lunchtime the sandwich was a little squashed from being in the pack but the view from Carruthers Peak more then made up for any imperfections in the sandwich.

Location: North Peak of Unnecessary Mountain, Cypress Park BC
About the sandwich:
A rare sunny, clear day in November before any significant snowfall was the perfect excuse to skip school and trundle up Unnecessary Mountain. Sandwich is sourdough, mayonnaise, home-made pesto, thinly sliced carrots and beets, and thick slices of Brie. It was as amazing as the food coma nap that followed shortly after.
