Moab, Utah – A birds-eye View

On my way back to Tucson from Boulder I spent a day in Moab, Utah. Usually, when I pass through Moab I take a lot of photos, but this time felt compelled to capture aerial scenes.  In the following video there are clips of the Wall Street climbing area (great sport and crack climbing), Negro Bill Canyon (Outstanding riparian area with lots of biodiversity and a natural arch at the end) and the Colorado River (Great flat water for SUP, kayak and rafting):

I made a quick trip to Boulder, Colorado where I spent time with friends and exploring my old stomping grounds.  I rode my mountain bike through the ranch which is now Open Space.  This brought up feelings of joy, pain, loss and wonder…  The old sign still hangs at the entrance:

I also spent time up in Nederland, Colorado and was able to make an aerial flight over Barker Reservoir and the Town:

And there was new snow in the high country:
