Grand Canyon Hot Air Balloon Flight 10/23/2016
On October 23, 2016, hot air balloon pilots Jon Radowski of Apex Balloons, Taylor Aldous, Steve Campbell and Dwayne Osborne each piloted their balloons across the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Few balloonists have attempted this crossing, with an estimated two dozen in history to ever have completed a Grand Canyon crossing.
This two-hour adventure flight covered approximately 45 miles across the widest part of the Canyon, from Grand Canyon National Park Airport near the South Rim, and ended to the east near Arizona Highway 89 northwest of Tuba City. All four balloons landed within roughly a half-mile of each other on the same dirt road for easy recovery. What a flight!
Apex Balloons remains the only company in the world offering this exclusive aerial expedition.

Kanab, Montezuma Tunnels
Found this in my old videos. A little nostalgia.
Our trip down to Kanab, UT. We were working on preventing OGM and BLM from blasting and destroying these old and historic monuments.
Montezuma's Cave video tour | Kanab Utah
Montezuma's Cave was found by William Fredrick Crisp, AKA Freddy Chrystal in the 1920's in Kanab, Utah. Freddy had found a map that supposedly led to the lost Montezuma treasure. No treasure was ever found in the cave, but other clues lead people to believe that the treasure is still buried near by.

Golden hour at Horseshoe Bend - Coral Pink Sand Dunes - Glen Canyon Dam - LeAw in the USA //Ep.42
We are living the American dream driving the Historic Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica but we are doing some detours to visit some places we like.
In this 42nd episode, after a quick stop in Coral Pink Sand Dunes, we leave Utah and enter in Arizona. We visit Glen Canyon Dam and Horseshoe Bend.
Enjoy the ride with us! ;)
Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park is a state park of Utah, United States, located between Mount Carmel Junction and Kanab, south and west of U.S. Highway 89 in southwestern Utah. The park features coral-hued sand dunes located beside red sandstone cliffs.
The Dunes are formed from the erosion of pink-colored Navajo Sandstone surrounding the park. High winds passing through the notch between the Moquith and Moccasin Mountains pick up loose sand particles and then drop them onto the dunes because of the Venturi effect. The dunes are estimated to be between 10,000 and 15,000 years old.
The park allows camping, hiking, off-road vehicle driving, and photography. There is a conservation area of 265 acres (1.07 km2), and the total grounds include 3,370 acres (13.6 km2). It was established as a Utah state park in 1963.
The Coral Pink Sand Dunes tiger beetle (Cicindela albissima) is an insect species that is endemic to the dunes, being found nowhere else in the world.
This state park contains most of the remaining individuals of a rare plant, Welsh's milkweed (Asclepias welshii), a federally listed threatened species.
Glen Canyon Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam on the Colorado River in northern Arizona, United States, near the town of Page. The 710-foot (220 m) high dam was built by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) from 1956 to 1966 and forms Lake Powell, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the U.S. with a capacity of 27 million acre feet (33 km3). The dam is named for Glen Canyon, a series of deep sandstone gorges now flooded by the reservoir; Lake Powell is named for John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 led the first expedition to traverse the Colorado's Grand Canyon by boat.
A dam in Glen Canyon was studied as early as 1924, but these plans were initially dropped in favor of the Hoover Dam (completed in 1936) which was located in the Black Canyon. By the 1950s, due to rapid population growth in the seven U.S. and two Mexican states comprising the Colorado River Basin, the Bureau of Reclamation deemed the construction of additional reservoirs necessary. However, the USBR faced opposition when it proposed the Echo Park Dam in Utah's Dinosaur National Monument, which the nascent environmental movement saw as a legal threat to the status of protected lands. After a long fight, the USBR agreed not to build the dam in Dinosaur National Monument, but only if the environmentalists did not oppose the proposed dam in Glen Canyon.
Since first filling to capacity in 1980, Lake Powell water levels have fluctuated greatly depending on water demand and annual runoff. Operation of Glen Canyon Dam helps ensure an equitable distribution of water between the states of the Upper Colorado River Basin (Colorado, Wyoming, and most of New Mexico and Utah) and the Lower Basin (California, Nevada and most of Arizona). During years of drought, Glen Canyon guarantees a water delivery to the Lower Basin states, without the need for rationing in the Upper Basin. In wet years, it captures extra runoff for future use. The dam is also a major source of hydroelectricity, averaging over 4 billion kilowatt hours per year. The long and winding Lake Powell, known for its scenic beauty and recreational opportunities including houseboating, fishing and water-skiing, attracts millions of tourists each year to the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
Horseshoe Bend is a horseshoe-shaped incised meander of the Colorado River located near the town of Page, Arizona, in the United States.
Horseshoe Bend is located 5 miles (8.0 km) downstream from the Glen Canyon Dam and Lake Powell within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, about 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of Page.
It is accessible via hiking a 1.5-mile (2.4 km) round trip from U.S. Route 89. Horseshoe Bend can be viewed from the steep cliff above.
The overlook is 4,200 feet (1,300 m) above sea level, and the Colorado River is at 3,200 feet (980 m) above sea level, making it a 1,000-foot (300 m) drop.
