    Good job! Riding Thunder Mountain, Utah with a dusting of snow

    We were passing through the Bryce area of Utah and woke up to a dusting of new snow. The main Thunder Mountain loop from Coyote Hollow down was still under too much winter snow, but to see the fresh dusting we just climbed up the trail from the bottom in Red Canyon. It was beautiful.

    (Watching it in 480p is a bit nicer, btw)

    How do you rig the camera? What's the boom setup? That's some great video in a spectacular setting!

    I put the camera on the end of a stick I picked up along the side of the trail. Pretty high tech. I just hold it in my hand overhead. This obviously only works on smooth trails or climbs. I use either the GoPro handlebar/seatpost mount or a RAM mount to attach the camera to the stick. When I actually plan ahead I sometimes carry a telescoping ski pole for this same application.

    Super cool Vid...
    Utah is a long way from Kodiac. Did the two of you fly and ship your bikes? Drive!?

    Some folks on Passion were asking for HD versions, so I uploaded the vid to vimeo.

    Here are all the rides in case you don't want to click around:

    We flew to Vegas with the bikes, and then drove to St George where Bob was kind enough to let us store our bike cases in his garage. That is usually our starting and ending place since it's only 2 hours from a major airport served by Alaska Airlines and we know people there that will babysit our junk while we travel. We just rent a minivan and put the bikes in the back standing up and strapped in place moto-style.

    boy that's some good work my man, schweet. Love the variety of angles, your boom work is inspirational! Will have to try that trick someday myself, but will need an equally inspiring location to due it justice!

    Do you stop and change camera positions a lot, or do you just edit the video that way?
    Great shots and work!

    It's partly a product of editing, partly stopping to move the camera. I usually shoot about 5 minutes in any given view, and that will provide me with three or four clips of about 6 seconds each that I intersperse with different angles. If I can reach the camera easily I will turn it off and on regularly.

    Great Camera angle and great video. What kind of software do you use to edit the videos?
