I’ve heard some people in the outdoor community express frustrations. These folks are right about an influx of outdoor enthusiasts enjoying nature, but I love the diversity COVID has blessed us with. Change is a huge part of life—whether you like it or not, it’s happening.
I’m a wheelchair-user who likes to test my physical and mental abilities, and with the help of adaptive technology, recreational equipment, family, and friends, I’ve learned that nothing is impossible. Earth has way too many beautiful and interesting landscapes to not explore, and pushing my physical and mental limits has been a source of healing after sustaining a life-changing spinal cord injury over a decade ago.
