Leaping off the Land: Simon Rasmussen

When Simon looks at the cliff faces of Mt Aspiring National Park, he thinks about jumping. Falling past 287 metres of vertical rock with the wind in his hair is one way Simon connects with wild places. He talks about his respect for the environment and the care he takes to preserve it.
