As the Tehachapi Renewable Energy Transmission Line Project nears completion in Bouquet Canyon, crews finish stringing the lines and connecting the insulators on this heavy connecting tower in 100 degree+ heat.
Many time lapse sequences show most of the day's work, including the last line being pulled into place by a winch truck, personnel being ferried onto the tower by helicopter, and numerous airlifts/deliveries of equipment and materials.
Finally, at the end of the day, most of the crew files down the tower leg... Yay - quittin' time! Filmed in Bouquet Canyon, California, July 2009.
The soundtrack is "Symbian Rhythms v2" from the "Silicon Landscape" CD by Technician (yours truly), album and single track available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/sili... Full artist discography, CDs, and MP3 downloads available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com
