Having Fun & Raising Awareness

All I can say about this one is it was one of the most fun days I've had out there and the intensity and beauty in this video shares that. Tumwater Canyon and the Wenatchee valley are some of my favorite places on the planet and kayaking is one of my favorite things in life. Freefly Systems got ahold of Tom Potter and asked him to get a couple of the boys together to make some magic happen. Of course I was happy to be a part of the fun we had that day. Have a look at some great editing and over-the-top drone work on a great day this summer. Thanks to Freefly Systems, Tpot, Gabe and Eli.

Before the whitewater begins, the first bit of this video brings awareness to an ill-proposed dam project on the Skykomish River a few at the local utility are trying to push through. It's been 4 years so far, and they've come up against nearly insurmountable opposition from just about all sides, but it's not over yet. They must not realize that not only it is a poor design, but also in poor taste to attempt to install a project like this in what might be considered a National Park in future generations. Temporary dollars for a few of the herd are never worth permanent destruction to the beauty mother nature provides. Have fun out there ya'll, what it's all about!
