Mount Washington Observatory proudly invites you to a special evening with renowned filmmaker, adventurer, author, and mountaineer, David Breashears:  

The Greater Himalaya has the largest concentration of glaciers outside the polar ice sheets, providing vital fresh water for almost every major river system of Asia. Over the past five years, Breashears and the team of his nonprofit organization, GlacierWorks, have conducted ten photographic expeditions to the region to study and document the effects of climate change on this delicate landscape. The result is a body of work that is both visually stunning and scientifically relevant, documenting not only the beauty of the Greater Himalaya, but also the staggering changes occurring there—unbeknownst to much of the Western world.

At this exclusive, one-night engagement, Breashears will share this work with you in a compelling blend of first-person story telling and breathtaking imagery. Join us for an unforgettable photographic expedition to the Vanishing Glaciers of the Greater Himalaya.
