Hurricane Irene washed away large parts of the road in Vermont. Three days after the storm occurred, four buses pulled up and off school children from the dark side of the mountain.
Their families discovered a forest path that the kids could walk to get them across the mountain to their school bus.
Now, more than a 1,000 people walk the path to get to their jobs and go food shopping on the other side of the mountain.
Children adjust to change easily. Whatever they do seems natural. Now, hiking through the woods has become a regular daily routine.
