Epic Adventures with Cory

Even though Cory had more interest in the mines and Copper Country ruins he was always willing to tag along on a good waterfall hike. From almost getting lost up at Montreal Falls to actually getting lost in the Herman-Nestoria, he has visited a wide variety of areas with Jacob and Faith. Cory also fell down the pinnacle at Pinnacle Falls.
