One Montana Park Is Bringing the Great Outdoors to the Disabled
Travelling across Big Sky Country you can encounter all types of terrain, all types of wildlife, all types of scenery. Whether that be taking the loop through Yellowstone or Glacier parks, taking in local attractions like the First Peoples Buffalo Jump or even just hanging at the fish hatchery at Giant Springs Park. However, for some of these experiences, it can be difficult to navigate if you are disabled or handicap.
One Montana State Park is making a difference for those that want to get out but have difficulty doing so.
Bringing The Outdoors Closer to Those That Can't Quite Reach It
