Filmmakers Andy Maser and Jenny Nichols have delivered us a real treat today in the form of this wonderful video below. Entitled Wild Love: Jake + Wende the short film gives us a glimpse of what life is like for mountaineer and guide Jake Norton and his wife Wende Valentine. Both share a passion for life and adventure, something they hope to instill in their children as well.
In the video, Jake is off on a tough expedition to climb Mt. Stanley, a 5109 meter (16,762 ft) peak located in the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda and Rwanda as part of his Challenge21 project. That endeavor will see him climbing the three highest peaks on each of the seven continents, which isn’t easy when they are trying to balance an adventurous life while still remaining a typical family.
