NW Volcano Tour - Flying Solo - Embracing the Pain

Crater Lake National Park

My physical therapist advised against going on this trip - my rheumatologist agreed.
I've been dealing with adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) for the past 7 months.
The short story is limited range of motion and intense searing pain when that range is exceeded.
Besides that, it only hurts when I breath.
My doc didn't laugh when I told her that.

Me not being the smartest fella, I say screw it - I'm going anyway.
Turns out they were mostly right - I went through some pretty tough stretches

Now that I'm home, though, the pain has faded and I still have the photos and good memories to enjoy.

My general route leads me to a Dave Matthews concert at the gorge in George Wa for the first night, Aug 31st.
From there it's south to see some Volcanos, then back home again.

My General Route - WA, OR, CA - 9 Days & 8 Nights - 2,332 Miles

Pictures, maps and commentary to follow.
