Drone capture changes the way we see the world. They're in the process of significantly altering how folk view the U.P., I expect. Mostly, people experience little bits of a landscape then piece that together in their minds. Do that enough over time, and maybe you get a pretty good idea of how the stuff you see fits together. It's far easier to view a given landscape as an organic whole when you can actually see the place intact through a few minutes of digital proxy. Plus, opening the place up like that to people who'll never go there is pretty profound, I'd think.

Here’s mine from 2 years ago. Best day of my life!

Cool - you can see why the ice went out in the village. Is there any river access between the dam and the power house?

There's always something special to find on the Victoria hill ... but this is something else!

Thanks for sharing, Nathan!Spray from the Victoria Dam falls near Old Victoria has coated the trees in a thick layer of ice this spring. I found this little pine tree to have a nodule of ice for each needle on its branches. Check out the falls and surrounding scenery while you can, they're blasting!
