Colorado Trike Flying, Alamosa, July 2008

eg: stopmotion, new-york, street
Frank, Chris, Rick and I made a trike expedition to Alamosa, CO in July 2008. The next morning we followed the Rio Grande towards it's source, near Creede, CO. There were clouds at Wagon Wheel Gap, so Chris and I checked out a side canyon (Goose Creek) and when we returned the clouds had lifted. We continued to Creede and beyond to an amazing series of mountain lakes and meadows. The next day we headed back home, following the Rio Grande Gorge to Taos, and on to Albuquerque. This is a companion video to an article to be published in the August 2009 issue of Light Sport and Ultralight Flying Magazine. I filmed all of the video on my Aiptek HD+ 1080P camera. If you like it, leave me a message. Or go to my webpage at ------------------- This is part 1 of of a two part series. The second part, "Colorado Flying, Pagosa" is also available for viewing.

    Wow!! That was a great experience. The video is very colorful and sharp. I feels like I am there. I would suggest more landing options, like over the water and trees. Were those sheep or goats running in front of you? The weather was cooperating nicely. A beautiful expose of God's creation.

    Horses are on the banks at 10:24 and at 11:40 that's a small herd of pronghorn antelope out in in the grasslands south of Alamosa. If you like this video, check out my most recent one, "Dream Flight."

    Wes, Jeff and a a couple of guys on here including the site owner are like the gurus of filming from trikes. They are like the master CFI's to learn from about filming from trikes while flying and editing. I know Jeff has been doing it for looong time.

    Hi Jeff. Big fan of your videos.
    Question; Do you use a monitor while filming so you can see what 'we' see?

    Here is a small color LCD display I installed on my instrument panel as a monitor for my video camera. I started using it last July and it works great. I can read status info like battery life, record time left, tele/wide angle mode, Lots of good stuff. It also came with a small camera that I don't use, but may install as a rear facing camera or look down camera on the kingpost.

    or type "Pyle backup camera" into google.

    You can find it for less than $50.

    Me:  Don't look the other way, you know I'm talking to you!!!

    Me:  I'm watching one of Jeff's old videos:

    Ken:  antelope - very fast
    Me:  the impala were stampeding past some desert tortoises that were really moving out--
    Me:  cutting and weevin'
    Me:  full gallop

    Ken:  Thats what they do for sure
    Ken:  All four legs up
