In the early 1970’s, a Calfornian adventure guide named Jack Morrison travelled to remote India to be the first person to descend the Tons River on a raft. He became enthralled by the region, spending many of his remaining 40 years exploring the endless tributaries of the Himalayas.
In 2009, Jack passed away from cancer, leaving his two sons and wife with a storage unit filled with documentation of his travels. With the hope of spreading his ashes in the place he loved most, his sons took their first trip to the Tons River. I was asked to follow along and document the journey — hoping to understand what kept him coming back, year after year.
