And finally tonight here, America strong. Two hikers out on the trail, but it is how they climb that mountain that moved us. Trevor has been hiking in the Colorado mountains for years. And what's remarkable is that he's been legally blind since birth. But he is hardly alone. His guide on those hikes these days, Melanie connect. Born with spina bifida, she uses a wheelchair, but not on those mountains. Step over and to the right. Reporter: Together, they help each other on the path. Mel knee serves as Trevor's eyes and he lifts her on the journey. To two friends from ft. Collins met a year ago at an adaptive rock climbing class and quickly realized they could help one another. I just love to be on the top of a mountain, because I can hear the expanse of space around me. I can listen to birds, can I listen to the waterfall I hear. He was telling me just about how he's been guided up min tans, like, using a voice system and I'm like, well, I have a voice. Reporter: And he now counts on that voice. And then to the right a little bit. We both serve a purpose on the trail and, you know, a huge responsibility, you know, to each other. Reporter: Sending us this on their hike today. Hi, David! Hi, David! Today we are hiking the twin sisters trail up near Estes park. How you feeling about it, Trevor? It's definitely a good training hike for us, because it's really rocky. It's going really good. Reporter: Grateful for their friendship and offering this final piece of advice. If you have a crazy idea, find another person that also agrees with that crazy idea and then it's not crazy anymore. Don't you love them? Trevor and Melanie, inspiring us all. Thank you for watching here on a Tuesday night. I'm David Muir. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow. Until then, good night.
