• 2000 feet below - Jones Pass

    [Update] Added video on 2nd channel with bonus footage plus ground recording https://www.youtube.com/wat......
    Took my Skyhunter from Jones Pass to Pettingell Peak then a 2000 +foot drop down into the valley below, and back.
    The launch point just above Jones Pass is at an elevation of 12,500 ft, the top of Pettingell Peak is 13,500ft, and the bottom of the valley is at 10,500ft.

    I have no idea who the campers at the bottom were. You can't drive back there, and there were no parked cars on the east side when I left. Can only figure they were hiking the continental divide trail and dropped down into the valley to get out of an earlier rain storm. Show less
