OMNIMAX Dome Theater

Saw Adrenline Rush in the OMNIMAX Dome Theater

From the Mojave Desert to the Cliffs of Norway to a Child’s 1st day of school to Skydiving to Base Jumping. The movie covers the psychological and physiological behind risk taking, especially high-risk activities like skydiving and base jumping. Why does a person crave danger? I enjoyed the scientific experiement done in the Mojave Desert, but I will not spoil it for you because it was a pretty cool, well executed experiment!

From May 2015 - March 2016, Sherry and Sean traveled the country and lived in a 5th wheel R.V. They took pictures, hiked mountains, and saw amazing sights. They are now settled in Fort Myers, Florida and are continuing to take pictures and seeing amazing sights. This is the blog of their journey from leaving St. Louis and starting an adventure, to living in Florida and doing photography. Enjoy the stories, and leave comments if you have one to share!
