This quick vacation/drone project kicked off when I left Atlanta and headed west with my wife, Karen, and our 10+ year old Siberian Husky, Sophie. I had also just got my hands on the new DJI Mavic 2 Pro quadcopter. Our plans were simple. Drive to SW Colorado’s San Juan mountains to wander before meeting a group of awesome friends in Aspen to backpack the famous 4 Pass Loop around the Maroon Bells. With stable Autumn weather on our side, we backpacked along pristine singletrack, scree and talus for over 70 miles while gaining 25k+ in elevation. Luckily, this favorable weather pattern permitted us to sleep high (between 11.5k and 13k) for a majority of our 15 nights under the stars. Our loyal canine companion, Sophie, even got to bag a few 14er summits which was a first for her. – Doug Urquhart
