So it seems like it took a ridiculous length of time (and it did, 3 hours!) but with the help of a very good friend, I was able to slowly hike the Cascades loop trail in the back brace. [For the record, its a very easy, low level, flat trail with just a few steps; Kindergarden classes go there on field trips]. Glad I got to see some pretty fall colors on one of my favorite nearby trails! Can’t wait until this thing is off and I can hit the hard stuff again!
The Cascades: The first successful hike since the accident!
