 Weminuche aspirations   

Full Trip Report Here

My big trip this summer was supposed to be a through hike of the Weminuche Wilderness. Due to a knee injury on day 2 though we accomplished only a 41 mile route instead of the planned 85 miles. Disappointing but still a great trip. The Weminuche is a huge wilderness and is not easy to cross. Mile after mile the trail throws everything it can at you. I do plan to return some day for another attempt on this magnificent route.

Nice, ambitious trip!     10/18/2011 23:25
I like how you put ”only” 41 miles!

Sorry you had to stop short of your goal, but super effort and trip all the same.

Thanks for posting.


Still a great trip regardless!     10/19/2011 12:27
Like Britt said - ”only” 41 miles... And 11 of it on a bum knee. What an effort! Nice work, Josh!


Cool Route!     10/20/2011 03:34
Sorry it didn't work out as you wanted. Still, well done!


Only 41...     10/21/2011 18:04
Still a great accomplishment! Well done report and pics. Did you ever find out what went wrong with your knee, or did it heal up on its own? Just curious.

Just a pinched meniscus, but enough to put a stop to the trip. I'm back to nearly 100% now.
