We don't stop hiking because we grow old, we grow old because we stop hiking. -- Finis Mitchell
Carl Fabiani article
Yesterday the Tacoma News Tribune ran a great article by Craig Hill on Carl Fabiani. One day soon, hikers on the Glacier Basin Trail will cross an unnamed creek about halfway up the path with hardly a second thought about the short wooden bridge under their boots.
Such is the case with most of Carl Fabiani’s projects. You might not know his name, but if you’ve hiked in Mount Rainier National Park in the last 45 years, you know his work.
Whether chopping through downed trees or bureaucratic red tape, Fabiani has been building and repairing trails in the park since he graduated from Buckley’s White River High School in 1965.
