Great travelogue; love the Movie Museum. Drone use though is a bummer and hope I never see one in the Alabama Hills. As someone said it is like the ultimate selfie stick. Another said this:
"Help me out here, I don't get it. People need drone video of the wilderness to be "inspired" to hike in the wilderness? Or does this just inspire more drone video? I think drones are really cool, but the sight and sound of them while hiking really bothers me. Like hearing someone talk loud on their cell phone, it's just not cool to invade other people's space like this. Maybe there's a way to open up a short window of access that hikers can avoid, but it should be very short and not an inconvenience to people seeking solitude".
