Jake Norton and Wende Valentine hope to teach their children to find what they love in life, and for Jake, that means leaving home several times a year to quench an insatiable desire to climb the world’s tallest mountains. Wild Love is a behind-the-scenes glimpse into their lives during one expedition, and explores the joys and challenges of balancing a passion for adventure with a family life. Jake & Wende is one video from the 4-part first series, Wild Love. More on National Geographic Adventure
Wild Love is a project to discover stories that remain untold, but that define our community. Love is a force that binds each and every one of us in this global community. At the end of the day, it’s all about love: it may be a wild love for adventure, love for each other or an insatiable love for living that keeps us going. We are in pursuit of stories with the common thread of love, loss and passion for living told by people who push their bodies, minds and lives to the limit.
