Karen Kefauver, Spin City: Cyclist Survives, thrives as backpacker

Published Friday July 29

For weeks I had nervous about my upcoming backpacking trip. Last time I hoisted a bulging, 50-pound backpack, I was 23 years old. Fast forward 2 decades and I had to face the indignities of my aging body. Nontheless, despite my fears, I knew I would be in marvelous hands during Calif. State Parks’ “Waddell to Waterfalls” trip. After all, it wasn’t a trek to Mount Everest — it was a two-day, one-night excursion.

Nevertheless, it felt epic. And, for a cyclist, backpacking was going to be a different beast.

We got started around ten in the morning at what I considered a brisk pace. Soon enough, I was trailing the group, accompanied by Eric. In the back, just like I had feared.
