Farragut State Park

July, 2018

Farragut State Park, North Idaho, High Point Trail

This is the second trail we have attempted with my trackchair.  It is a trail we used to hike on before I became unable to walk any distance due to becoming paralyzed during exertion.

The kids were excited to go looking for treasures and Mom and I were excited to get out of the house and into the woods!  What we discovered is that this trail has a lot more large rocks on the trail path that caused the chair to bottom out on several times.

So we chose to turn around and try the path to the visitors center for a rest, but the trail isn’t well marked so we couldn’t find it.  We decided to head back to the car, which was good because I ended up getting paralyzed as soon as we got back to the car.  The heat, even though I was wearing my cooling vest, and activity was too much for me to handle.

We I got my medicine, and my wife packed up the chair and kids.  We stopped at the visitors center to use the bathroom and allow the kids to have a picnic.  Overall it was great to get out of the house and have some fun with the kids.  Until next time…
