Recently I had just about the perfect day.  I got to spend the day with the wife and child - driving on snowy mountain roads, hiking snowy mountain trails, and overlooking snowy Virginia from High Rocks near Wytheville, VA. We even finished out our day with some hot chocolate... Good Stuff!

You may be used to better image quality from this blog... I gotta be honest, I only brought my LG V30 and Phantom 4 with me.

The day started out with my boy telling me(without words) that he would like to go enjoy the snow... 

We hit the road for Big Survey Wildlife Management Area near Wytheville, VA.  The Subaru handled the winter roads like nothing was out of the ordinary!  When we got to the trail head, I asked my wife politely if she would feed the boy so I could fly the drone...

Below you can see the trail meandering through the forest and up the mountain.  We were the first on the trail today, blazing through fresh snow!

Once at the top I took a few quick shots with my smartphone before sending the Phantom up.  There were some really high winds near the top, so the flight was short as I didn't want to take too many chances, especially since I was operating the drone well under the recommended minimum temperature.
