From Sea to Summit …

There are few people who have explored above the jagged peaks of Alaska's Seward Peninsula, as well as bellow the hidden waters that surround them. Mathieu Blanchard and Max King head to meet Denali Foldager where she grew up in Seward Alaska where they will attempt to explore one of the last true wild spots on earth, from the bottom of the bay to the top of Mt. Marathon. This story would connect that wide eyed exploration of something new, the way we engage with community and the importance of the wild places that still exist in this world.

Heart & Soul
