A wildly adventurous photographer, Harriet Chalmers Adams travelled the world working for National Geographic. Born in California, Harriet and her father explored the Sierra Nevada on horseback in 1883, when she was only 8 years old.
After marrying Franklin Adams, a kindred spirit and adventurer, the two spent 3 years travelling over 40,000 miles around South America. Harriet went on to explore Haiti, Turkey, North Africa, the South Pacific, Siberia, France, and even spend time in the trenches of WWI.
