All Around Lake Tahoe, part 1

Posted at 09:00 /shows/outings [link [Bookmark Link]]
Listen now:

[Tahoe Rim Trail] This outings program is a visit to the Tahoe Rim Trail. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association celebrated their twenty fifth anniversary by leading fifteen people on a through hike of their 165 mile trail.

Steve hikes from Echo Summit along a section of trail shared by the Tahoe Rim Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. He meets the hikers at their mid-trip camp at Showers Lake. From there, he hikes with them to Echo Lake.

Steve talks to:

  • Steve Andersen, the president of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association
  • Nicole Anderson, the youngest member of the party
  • Gary Hanneman, the eldest member of the party
  • Nada Vogt, one of the support volunteers
  • Lorenz Robinson, perhaps the participant with the least prior outdoor experience

Next week's show will feature wrap-up interviews with some of the trip's participants.
