How Ted Hesser Captured a Viral Picture of the Eclipse

Columbia, in partnership with Goal Zero, is proud to share “Totality,” a behind-the-scenes film that illustrates the vision and dedication of this talented team. In this piece, Ted Hesser and Andrew Studer take us through the journey and meticulous planning leading up to the shot, and share their reactions after they nailed it. The expressions on their faces as they clicked the shutter to capture the image are almost as epic as the photo itself.

Special thanks to Martina Tibell, Tommy Smith, and Michael Shainblum.

An enormous avalanche broke loose in the Chipurson Valley of Pakistan as two mountaineers were walking up the valley beneath it, forcing them to run for cover behind some boulders. Probably would have been a good idea to get out of the way before it bears down on you…

Mountain In The Hallway: Words & Artwork By Tate MacDowell

Mountain In The Hallway Last summer in my fight against cancer and pursuit of climbing the Grand Teton, I was forced to confront the disappointing reality of life’s challenges. During this period of time I realized that my reaction to tragic events may very well be the only thing I have control of. Would I allow myself to become defeated and depressed or attempt to find a greater meaning in my defeat?  This poem is my attempt at the latter. It’s a reminder that my goals are simply a
