We rolled into Taos New Mexico Sunday, and it is truly a magical place with vast prairies, mountains and incredibly colorful sunsets.
Weather Flip Flop
I’ve been watching the weather as there have been some snow storms on the mountain, and while I dig extreme conditions, it makes photography challenging especially since I plan to carry a flying camera up the mountain. The weather report predicted a perfect day tomorrow and some weather today. As it turns out, today was the perfect day, and tomorrow is now calling for weather. I’m going for it tomorrow anyway, and if I don’t make it, I’ll try again Thursday or Friday.
Been getting comfortable with the new Solo photography drone, and it’s going to be a great tool.
I love being able to suspend a camera in mid-air anywhere I want, it’s quite exhilerating and I intend to put it to good use.
Wheeler Plan of Attack
I’ll be on the mountain early and will be posting from the satellite beacon as usual. Some people split this one into 2 days, but I’m going to do it in one. It is going to be a full day as its a big climb with a 4,500′ elevation gain and I’m traveling heavy with the drone and supporting equipment. My plan is the go up the shorter but steeper, more technical route on the way up, and take the longer more scenic route on the way down.
