Here’s about 90 seconds of video from Taos Valley Overlook for you. I was out there today, walked 3.5 miles with my ancient little Kodak Zi6 video thingie, and found all kinds of things to look at. When I put this together in iMovie, I had to turn the volume way down because of the wind noise in all the clips—it’s just as well you can’t make out my spontaneous narration in a couple places—but the movie still gives you a good idea of what it’s like to be alone out there. The first scene is actually from September 28, 2012, but the rest I shot today. It was 60 °F and felt warmer. About time!
In the process of dusting off the Zi6 and turning it on, I discovered some clips from Arizona and elsewhere that I’ve never published before. You can expect some of those to show up next.
