  • An awesome story about a *BLIND* hiker who finished the AT this past year. What is particularly impressive is the help he got from strangers, impromptu hiking partners who helped him along the way.

    When asked why he hiked the mountains when he wouldn't even be able to say the views, he said he was able to appreciate the trail in his own way.

    “I heard the snow crushed underfoot, felt the wind against my skin, felt the sun on my face and enjoyed the sheer silence of it all.”

    (Hat tip, Brian V!)
