Aug 2017 Solar Eclipse Video, from near Hereford, OR, by Tucker Hammerstrom

My friend Tucker had a great idea to use his drone to show moon's shadow travel during the eclipse.

The video is about 6x normal speed.

Susan and I hiking The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah, Nov 2011

The hike is about 7 1/2 miles round trip in scenic slot canyon, over 5 miles of it in the river due to narrow canyon.

We were a little tired as this was on way out.

I used a GoPro camera, tiny HD camcorder, waterproof to 180ft.

I had a second trekking pole (extended about 4ft), that has tripod mount on top,

with GoPro attached.  The angle of camera is such that you cannot see the

2nd pole I am holding in my left hand. I am holding them out so camera is

above and in front of us.


Susan and I are stuck in the mud, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah, Oct 2015
Land Cruiser stuck on Notom Rd near the Burr Trail.  After walking through the area several times
without sinking, the Land Cruiser was not so lucky.  We had dug for 4 hours when 2 road workers
walked over from the other direction.  They tried to push us out but no go.  Due to wash outs they 
drove 2 hours to get behind us and pick up a large tractor, an hour after dark they arrived and pulled us out.


Wildlife


Salmon Run on the American River, Nov 2013, Gold River, CA.

Water percolating through the gravel from the Nimbus Fish Hatchery created a

false tributary that salmon were checking out.  Some underwater shots using a GoPro Hero 3.

Bighorn Sheep, Sept 2012, Zion National Park, UT

Quick edit on some of my footage and posted on YouTube.

Did some sound cleanup and think I wound up with sound delayed slightly, have to figure that out.

One of the Bighorn sheep is a youngster and seems more interested in playing.

Killer bees on Sacred Datura, Sept 2012, Valley of Fire, NV

All parts of all Datura plants are toxic and can be fatal if ingested. It is also

hallucinogenic and was used by native Americans. Therefore the honey

these bees are making should not be used. According to signs in the park

most of the bees in Valley of Fire are likely Africanized Honey Bees, making

it unlikely the honey will be harvested. 

Hmm, killer bees on drugs. :-)

Canyoneering Adventures


Angel Cove Slot Canyon, May 2014, near Hanksville, UT.

We descended down through the canyon and then hiked back up the

ridge line to the trucks.


Winter Camp Slot Canyon, May 2014, near Moab, UT.

We descended down through the canyon and then hiked back up the

ridge line to one of the trucks that we staged near end.


Angel Point Slot Canyon, Nov 2012, near Hanksville, UT.

The first rappel was a little more advanced than we had done before, as

flipping upside down is not considered good form. 

We descended down through the canyon and then hiked back up the

ridge line to the trucks.
