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.

El Paso Mountains…

So, I’d parked my Jeep along this trail in the El Paso Mountains, and I decided to try to capture the vista, with the Rand Mountains to the south-west.

I was satisfied with the results, but what struck me after viewing this video on my computer, is the trail in the distance that seems to disappear into the Rand Mountains.
