Peak Shots / by Maria Hinojosa | April 26, 2013

Peak Shots

We meet Claudia Lopez, the first Colombian woman to summit in the Himalayas. Lopez makes her living photographing world-class climbers, but she volunteers helping injured climbers get their confidence back. Juliana Schatz reports.

This story is part of the RadioNature series which explores the ways Latinos connect with nature. RadioNature is supported by the REI Foundation.

Schatz_headshotJuliana Schatz specializes in stories of public health and human rights in communities of color, but her love for the outdoors and adrenaline means she occasionally dabbles in adventure storytelling. Her work with PBS FRONTLINE, GlobalPost and Sender Films has taken her from the peaks of Giza to the sky-high Rocky Mountains.
