Trust, determination and a TrailRider lead to breathtaking views
I’m staring up at the sky, completely vertical, as six people all get into position to lift me and an off-road wheelchair up a rock face that most people would hesitate to scale. The only thing that is going through my head is that I feel no fear and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, except right here, with these people, about to pull off this amazing trip. But let me back up.
My third adventure with Power To Be’s TrailRider was different from my previous trips up Mt. Finlayson and to Mystic Beach. We really wanted to go for broke. In talking with Carolyn Macdonald and Clay Webb, two of the amazing Power To Be staff who I’ve become close with, we decided on Forbidden Plateau and Cruikshank Canyon. This is an alpine hike with a bunch of elevation changes that many able bodied people shy away from – so of course it was right in our wheelhouse!
