“Adventure Is Anything that Puts Us Outside our Comfort Zone”: Notes from the Himalayas

Adventure photographer Cory Richards almost died in an avalanche while descending from a mountain in Pakistan, but he lived and the experience changed his life.

In this short (and amazing) video, he shares on “the richness that comes through struggle.”


“I’ve never been comfortable in the place that I’m in. I can’t stop and sit. It’s a constant engine that’s driving me to the things that are unknown to me.”

“When I realized I hadn’t died, I turned the camera on myself and took a picture, which ended up on the cover of National Geographic.”
