Andrea's adventures on the trail…

Carbon River Road

on April 23, 2014

Well, my knees have again challenged me. I’ve had surgery on both knees in the past 9 weeks for chronic bursitis and ITB syndrome (#2 on the left and #6 on the right), and am ready to get back on the trails after physical thearpy! I’ve been building back up endurance by sticking to level hikes to begin with, and the Carbon River Road is a perfect place for that. The northwest entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park is a gorgeous rainforest in a river valley, and 5 miles of flat gravel road that is now closed to cars. Perfect for working those knees back into shape!

I already have Yosemite, Ansel Adams, and Enchantments permits in hand for this summer, plus a lot of other trails with my name on them. Can’t wait to get back up on my Mountain for some snow-shoeing next week!
