Exploration demands not only physical endurance, extensive training, and a comprehensive toolkit, but also a mental capacity to seamlessly enter environments vastly different from our own, be they natural, cultural, or psychological, to accomplish our goals. This year, The Lowell Thomas Awards will celebrate those explorers who have exhibited an extraordinary capacity to transcend traditional comfort zones to undertake expeditions that benefit us all.
