Blind lawyer hikes Appalachian Trail
2:05 pm, January 23rd, 2013
This Slate story is about how a blind lawyer from the Minneapolis area used GPS technology to hike the Appalachian Trail, from Georgia’s Springer Mountain all the way to Maine.
Mike Hanson tells us he attended the University of St. Thomas School of Law, graduating in 2005. He practices in business and estate planning.
The Slate story says he has been blind almost since birth and is obviously undeterred by big challenges. He’s written a book on his trek, and he is planning another along the Pacific Crest trail.
