SUNSET ON THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE! COLORADO

HAYDEN KAST

Top contributor Hayden Kast, recently featured on the Drone Dish, created this stunning drone video of a spot on the North American Continental Divide.  It was shot in Summit County, Colorado, which is in the north-central part of the state.  The great divide forms the border between the eastern and western watersheds of North America; everything to the east flows towards the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico, everything to the west flows into the Pacific Ocean. This video was a DVOW nominee in May 2019.

With much of its area covered by the Rocky Mountains, the state of Colorado was endowed with more than its share of the beauty of the United States.  If you need any convincing, this stunning aerial montage of the Centennial State by the World Travel Guy should do the trick.  It includes footage from some of the state's top sites, including Ten Mile Creek, Bangs Canyon, American Basin, Bear Creek Falls, and more.  It also includes footage of Mt. Elbert, the Rockies' highest peak at 4.4k meters (14.4k ft.).

American Fork Canyon lies in the Wasatch Mountains of northern Utah in the western United States, a range which constitutes the western edge of the Rocky Mountain range.  The canyon was created by the American Fork River, which runs through the bottom of the great gorge before discharging in Utah Lake.  Contributor Dewey Drone created this amazing aerial video of the canyon, which is home to the Timpanogos Cave National Monument.  It's also a popular hiking spot.

Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in western Colorado, Gunnison (which is a country and a town) was important in the state's early mining and railroad booms .  Nowadays, like many of Colorado's old mining districts, it is more about adventure sports enthusiasts and travelers seeking the spectacular rock formations that abound.  Top contributor MikeyG flew his drone over this rocky wonder land and produced this amazing aerial video.

Wyoming Wind

John Stinnett

The western USA state of Wyoming has always been known for its abundant natural resources.  It was the country's largest oil producing state in the 1920's, and its Powder River Basin provides about 40% of America's coal.  Recently, Wyoming has become a top wind power producer, and giant windmills now punctuate its landscape.  Here, John Stinnett uses a drone to create a beautiful look at a wind farm in western Wyoming, the spinning turbines capturing another state resource.

Montana is one of the largest states in the USA in terms of its land area.  While the eastern part of the state lies on the Great Plains and resembles the Dakota's, the western part is pure Rocky Mountain Highs.  Contributor Benlewis 406 treats us to a beautiful aerial tour of his beautiful home state.  The video features shots of the animal wildlife and natural scenery that makes it a favorite of avid outdoorspeople from around the country and the world.

The Rocky Mountains in the western United States is actually a collection of ranges; most of the mountains thought of as the "Rockies" are actually part of various sub-ranges throughout the region.  One of these is the Wind River Range, which runs through a portion of western Wyoming, north of Colorado.  In this video, Mikeyg733 treats us to a stunning bird's eye view to these magnificent western mountains of one of America's largest but least populated states.

Idaho: Idahome

60 Seconds

The state of Idaho in the western USA has a landscape which varies dramatically.  While the western part of this odd-shaped state is flat farmland and desert, the eastern part of the Gem State lies in the heart of the great Rocky Mountain range.  This drone video by contributor 60 Seconds is shot in a place that sits right at the border of the "Two Idaho's"; note the dramatic difference in appearance between the (flat) foreground and (mountainous) background.

The Snake River Canyon is one of the most famous gorges in North America.  Carved by the Snake River, the canyon reaches a maximum depth of 150 meters (400 ft.) and is as wide as 400 meters (about 1.3k ft.) over its roughly 80 km (5 mi.) length.  Famously, the canyon was the site of one of the 20th century's greatest stunt attempts: Evil Kneivel tried to jump the gorge with his Skycycle X-2 rocket powered "motorcycle" in 1974; the jump failed when the parachute inadvertently deployed.
