New Story: Climber knows great heights, great depths

This is a somewhat interesting story from The Times Dispatch. It’s a story about Charles Macfarlane, who climbs with five blind climbers on Mt. Kilimanjaro. He was climbing with Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest. While the blind climbers get the experience of summitting the mountain, Charles Macfarlane gets to see the vistas, the sun rising over the Great Rift Valley and the poverty in the villages. I am not sure I agree with his opinon on the villages of Kilimanjaro, but there is some truth to it.
