Grand Canyon Memory: Hiking Rim-to-Rim in 1956

Back in 1956, blind students from the Arizona State School for the Deaf and Blind set out to hike the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in a day. The boys, members of the school's hiking club, navigated the steep terrain and hairpin turns of the mile-deep canyon. Thank you to Grand Canyon Trust member Bill Thorton, who was along for the hike, for sharing this fond memory of "saying I can instead of I can’t.”
