Panoramic Video-El Paso Mountains…

This was a nice, slow flight over the interior of the El Paso Mountain Range, which is located in California’s Mojave Desert, approximately thirty miles south of the city of Inyokern.  Looming in the background is Black Mountain, which has some interesting lore associated with it.

It is thought that Native Americans used the top of the mountain as a site for their ceremonies and trading activities.  According to local legend, miners who were prospecting and living in the area during the late nineteenth century, reported seeing strange lights at the top of the mountain at night.

This was filmed using my DJI Phantom 4 Drone in January, 2018.  All rights reserved.

Of all the photos that I’ve taken with my DJI Phantom 4 (https://www.dji.com/phantom-4), this is one of my favorites.  I shot this in October, 2016 at an area in the Mojave Desert that is known as Robber’s Roost.  According to legend, infamous bandit Tiburcio and his gang camped here, while “casing” the nearby Freeman stage coach stop.
