An Arizona recreational program allows people with disabilities to experience adapted outdoor adventures like backpacking, cross-country skiing and kayaking. "We're kind of like a stepping stone," said Ellen Grunert, a volunteer and retired special-education teacher. "If we can get out there and show [people with disabilities] how to do it, they can go farther on their own after their experience with us. It's just pure delight to see someone else experience what you love to do."
