Thru-Hiking The Tahoe Rim Trail Article

By Erin "wired" Saver @ErinWiredSaver
Those you that missed it this past summer, I teamed up with the incomparably awesome Why Not and Rockin' to hike the 173mi trail over 9 days. The latest issue of TrailGroove Magazine was released this week including an article I wrote about our Tahoe Rim Trail experience. In the article, I also explain why I think the Tahoe Rim Trail is one of the best "shorter" long distance backpacking experiences out there. Especially for those looking to hone their skills and try out a quite varied long distance trail experience.

This is also a great preview to what my summer will hold. This fun trio will be teaming up yet again this summer as Why Not and Rockin' will be joining me on both the Sierra High Route (end of June-ish) and then the Wind River High Route (mid/late July). So excited to do these routes with Rockin' and Why Not!

While I tend to take the off season away from hiking, Rockin' and Why Not have been quite busy! Why Not recently completed hiking New Zealand's 1,800mi Te Araroa Trail that I aim to do next winter (read her daily journal here)...and as usual, Rockin' takes advantage to get out almost every weekend (whew!) and just spent spring break on a leg of the Hayduke (Rockin's daily journal here) with my friends Drop-N-Roll and Bubbles(follow their Hayduke thru-hike here). The spring weather and sun has just recently arrived here in Portland and I'm starting to get that wanderlust back in me...oh boy, it's gonna be quite a year ahead!
