Adrenaline Associated With Adventurers Risk Taking
Andrew Murr and his friend David Thacher had once taken a camping trip to Quinault Rain Forest, which is the wettest forest in the U.S and which may lead to fatal accidents . It is reported that the night temperatures fell to freezing and the mudslides could even throw their tent over 3 inches of mud.

We have heard about Kit DesLauriers skiing down Mount Everest recently and one can't forget about the news of three experienced mountain climbers missing in Oregon.

The questing is "What makes adventurers risking their lives in dangerous landscapes?" A recent research has given a clue on this subject.

The research has found that adrenaline is a natural chemical released through invigorating physical activities that increases the heart-rate. Adrenaline also helps in dilating the blood vessels. This hormone released helps in coping up with unexpected and dangerous situations. Maybe that is the reason why the avid sports risk takers and thrill seekers dare to participate in extreme sports activities, to get that adrenaline pumping.
