My First Dronie

My First Aerial Photo/Video

While boondocking near Borrego Springs, CA, I had a chance to experiment with my new 3DR Iris+ drone "quadcopter". One of the features of this system is the ability to make a quick "dronie". This is a "selfie" video made by the drone. Larry's brother, Rocky, came in to visit for the afternoon. Luckily, he had the necessary "GoPro" camera, which I haven't yet purchased. We hooked up the camera to t...

Teslin Lake Campground, Yukon, Canada

Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada

Burns Lake Municipal Campground, B.C., Canada

Burns Lake, B.C, Canada

During our return trip from Alaska, we stopped for the night at the Burns Lake Municipal Campground in British Columbia, Canada. This is a free city operated campground on the lake. There's a 3 night stay limit. This is a very nice little park. We arrived around 2:00pm and were the only campers there. There's about 7 sites available, and room for a couple more RV's in the parking lot. A few hours ...
