The Everest in our backyard
Erik Weihenmayer’s adventures have taken him from Himalayan peaks to Antarctic ice: he’s the only blind climber to summit the highest mountain on every continent. But even though he's traveled the world, Erik knows that the wild spaces that matter most are the ones close to home—the neighborhood parks and trails that allow everyone to experience challenge and change in outdoors.
We visited Erik at his home in Golden, Colorado, to explore his favorite local trail and hear why he's working for outdoor access for all. Watch the video above—or read the exclusive interview in Land&People magazine.
