Painted Canyon Video 2016

As 2016 comes to a close, I started looking back at all the great trips and adventures i’ve been able to go on this year. But there are so many unfinished video projects as well. It seems if it takes more than a week…then it will turn into two, then a month, then two months, and so on. That was the case of the Pecos River video from our August trip. Great intentions, but work and family took more of my time than before, and I found it hard to just sit down and focus. I know i’m not the only guy with a camera this happens to, but it is irritating.  I had planned on a full narrative with a more short film feel, but couldn’t get it accomplished in a timely manner before the next new project was in the works and it got put on the back burner….again.

So, after much deliberation, I decided to skip the narrative since I already had a 4 part report with a ton of photos from this trip. And the more I thought about it, it would have been a bit redundant to be saying the same things that were in the trip reports. So instead, I decided to just let it speak for itself and let the viewer come along on this visual journey through the wilds of the Lower Pecos River where two father/son teams set out to spend a week going up rapids, battling heat, exploring shelters, and having the time of our lives.
