Bob Coomber Hikes Sierra Nevada Mountains In A Wheelchair

Hiking up a mountain isn’t easy. But just try doing it in a wheelchair, over trails pock-marked by boulders.

Last month, 59-year-old Bob Coomber made his second attempt at a 22-mile hike over the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just west of Lake Tahoe.

He didn’t make it. But Coomber’s valiant effort was documented by a filmmaker and a photographer.
