RV Life: Providing camping for those with mobility challenges

WASHINGTON — The sights and sounds of the natural world are a highlight to any outdoor adventure and a driving reason many people take the plunge into RV life. Being able to get out and feel the breeze on your face while listening to the rustle of leaves overhead, the babble of a brook, or quietly watching a deer graze are part of what connects us to the Earth.

At the base of Kenosha Pass, Colorado on a 20-acre hillside covered with aspen and pine trees is a unique privately run campground. Wilderness on Wheels is a non-profit campground that has been opening the magic of the forests to people of all abilities and their families since it first opened in 1986.
