Teslin Lake Campground, Yukon, Canada

Teslin Lake, Yukon Territory, Canada
Here's a short aerial video of Teslin Lake Government Campground in the Yukon Territory, Canada. I filmed this with my 3DR Iris+ quadcopter (drone), using a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. I'm still learning how to best make these videos. This video was made using a GPS assisted "loiter" mode, which created much of the jitters.

Alaska Trip - Week 2

After leaving Quesnel, we moved another 170 miles to the small town of Mackenzie (May 20th - 21st). We've been moving slowly, ensuring we enjoy the trip. Why drive all day, just to get exhausted? We may have some long stretches, but we're all much happier if we keep our journey to under 4 hours a day. Mackenzie is a little off the main route, 17 miles each way to be exact. But there were two reaso...

Portland & Seattle

Wow, it's hard to believe that Larry posted only two weeks ago, it seems like that was such a long time ago since we were in Klamath Falls.We enjoyed our little day trip to Crater Lake NP. We were very lucky and took the south entrance, come to find out that was the only entrance that was open. Since it was early in the season, things weren't quite open yet. In fact it was free to enter the park (...

We enjoyed our lazy stay there, visiting Point Mugu and catching up on some more computer work. After our week here, we moved a little further north to the California Army National Guard campground at Cam San Luis Obispo, CA...
