Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge Previous Broadcasts

The Southern Ocean: South Georgia Island (Episode #112)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 26, 2013 -- 3:00 PM

Lying between wind-ravaged Cape Horn and Antarctica, South Georgia Island is an icy oasis with an abundance of wildlife. Stunningly beautiful and rugged, this island sanctuary protects thousands of sea birds and marine mammals. Art returns to his favorite place on earth to explore its emerald bays and fjords and visit colonies of king penguins, wandering albatross and elephant seals.

The Southwest: Zion and Canyon De Chelly (Episode #110)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 12, 2013 -- 3:00 PM

The American Southwest is a geological time machine. Its bizarre and beautiful rock formations are the result of eons of erosion. In Utah's Zion National Park, Art explores surreal slot canyons carved from wind and water and encounters the strange rock spires-hoodoos-that punctuate the landscape like giant exclamation points. In Arizona's Canyon de Chelly, he goes by horseback with a Navajo guide to discover petroglyphs hidden in tribal lands. With its brilliant light, red desert rock, cobalt blue skies, golden cotton woods and white-barked Aspens, the American Southwest is a photographer's playground.

Patagonia: Mt. Fitz Roy (Episode #109)

KQED Life: Sat, Oct 5, 2013 -- 3:00 PM

Rugged Patagonia offers Himalayan-quality drama in a small package. Just above El Chalten, South America's unofficial trekking capital, rises the jagged silhouette of Mt. Fitz Roy - revered and iconic in the world of mountaineering and photographed thousands of times. Art sets off in search of a different and unique view of the peak. En route, he treks through an ancient forest, fords an icy river, goes under a glacier and traverses one of the largest ice caps in the world.
