A ropes course suspended three stories above the ground isn't everyone's idea of a good time.

But now imagine doing it blindfolded. It was all about challenging yourself, while raising awareness about blindness. It was exciting, but I didn't know what to expect. So one of the staff members would say, 'Okay, this one's a platform and it zigs in the middle.' It made sense in my head, but I was telling myself, 'Okay it's going to zig. Which way does it zig? How far does it zig? When does it zig?' So I was trying to figure it out on my own with each step.
The blindfold made it significantly easier. It was much more difficult to navigate trying to find out where I had to put my foot and hands. But I didn't have to deal with the fact that I was 60, 70, 80 feet off the ground. The goal of the indoor ropes course adventure was to raise awareness that blind people can do the same things as sighted people.
