Fish Creek

Island’s dominant watershed; only road-accessed high country

In mid-August, before the subalpine plants faded into autumn senescence, I got to fly my new Solo quadcopter over the parkland near Cropley lake. The camera gimbal had not yet arrived, so this video is a little shakey. Can’t wait to do some stabilized flying over these lovely meadows next summer!
