About Carola K.

Wenn ich draußen bin, bin ich glücklich. Da ich mich gerne an meine Abenteuer erinnere und stets dabei bin, neue zu planen, blogge ich seit einigen Jahren über meine Leidenschaft. Als offizielle Collection-Redakteurin für komoot plane ich aber nicht nur mein, sondern auch dein nächstes Abenteuer.Mit Vorliebe wandere ich in den USA, wo ich mich in die kargen Wüsten verliebt habe. 2019 habe ich den 1.300 Kilometer langen Arizona Trail durchwandert und plane viele weitere Kilometer in den Canyons, Wüsten und Bergen – darunter den Pacific Crest Trail in 2022. In und um Berlin geht es flacher zu, dafür werden hier Kilometer für Langdistanzmärsche geschrubbt, mit dem Packraft die Fluss- und Seenlandschaft erkundet und die Trails mit dem Mountainbike gerockt.Aber egal, ob Berlin oder Grand Canyon – ich freue mich, wenn du meinen Spuren und Empfehlungen folgst. Einige Touren kenne ich selbst bestens. Genauso spannend ist es aber, völlig neue Gebiete mit komoot zu erschließen. Dabei finde ich für dich die schönsten Routen und interessantesten Highlights. Da sich Bedingungen und Wege ändern können, bin ich froh über dein Feedback, falls eine Route einmal nicht mehr passt. :)Viel Spaß!Arizona Trail Collection: komoot.de/collection/904668/-arizona-national-scenic-trail

      If you think you know the paths and trails on your doorstep, you're wrong. Yesterday Komoot proved to me again that it has very creative routes for mountain biking in store if you want to cycle south.The cherry blossoms on the Japanese cherry blossom avenue have finally risen - I have never seen it this late. And the rape also makes the fields shine again. It's a shame that spring will take a break from tomorrow. So out with you, enjoy the sunshine one more time. ☀️

      It's been a long, long time since I covered such kilometers in a row. More than a year to be precise. Two knee operations later it's / I'm finally ready again. What a nice "walk" through the wonderful Barnimer Land - in my eyes still an insider tip, because despite the terrific weather and the weekend we didn't meet a single other hiker on the 33 kilometers.The landscape is also wonderfully varied. We started near the Werbellinsee and then into the forest. From dry heather with impressively thick pines, to beech forests and picturesque lakes, everything is here. That peppered with numerous memorial stones, cute picnic benches and one or the other hill. We sweated like in midsummer. And it felt like a day on a Thruhike, too. Ouch! 😅 One thing is clear: we will be back! There is still so much to discover here.Thanks to @Napalm Death, who always puts out the parking lots as a highlight. Please continue. That helps a lot :)

      Finally summer has arrived! To celebrate, we grabbed the boat and went to the Werbellinsee. I have never seen clearer water in Brandenburg. Absolute madness with a visibility of several meters to the ground. 🐟Since a really fresh wind was blowing, we turned right into the Werbellink canal and paddled a little way past Eichhorst. The Eichhorster lock is an experience in itself. It goes up or down about three meters. And above all the passage up the lock has something of a white water canal. No wonder the small boats should (actually) stay behind. But with our whitewater packrafts it was real fun. 😅

      Go hiking. Cycling is possible. To run? A minor disaster. It is not even (mainly) the physical condition that is missing. My ankles are just killing me. 🔪 Reminds me of my first days on the Arizona Trail. Pain without end. Oh well. Good things take time. 😆🐌

      As always, I just wanted to do a little lap in the evening. And if you have ever made it to Ruhlsdorf, the Güterfelder Haussee is not far away either.As a reward, there was a cyclist at the bathing area and a few more wonderful hours of sunshine. Oh and by the way, a detour to the castle :) The way back was quite frosty for almost May. Where is spring then?

      Continuous foot steps: a continuous step sequence is absolutely important for most Thruhikern. So before I take the shuttle to the Hermit Trail the next morning, I hike the entire Rim Trail from the campsite to the Hermit Trail the day before.While Thatch started at night, Mantis and I say goodbye in the morning, and then we part ways. Awesome as usual, I descend in the largest of all canyons. The steep walls, the numerous layers of rock that are millions of years old, the wonderful color variations - the Grand Canyon is simply unique and fascinating. No matter how often I am here. I explore the ruins of an old luxury camp around Hermit Creek. There is so much history to discover here.However, the weather is also very creative this time. After the night, violent thunderstorms sweep through the canyon on the happily babbling Hermit Creek and make me duck behind a stone one time or another. Sometimes the rain softens the already narrow path on the edge of the abyss. This is not the place for inattention.It is slowly clearing up on the south side of the Colorado River. But the clouds are still dark and low over the North Rim. What pours down as rain inside the canyon comes down as snow at the higher elevations. The perfect template for hypothermia ...
