Sentinel Peak in Tucson, Arizona
Travel with me to Sentinel Peak in Tucson, Arizona where I explore this iconic landmark's history and influence upon the city. The peak is popularly known as A Mountain because of the giant A on its side for the University of Arizona.
Additional Note: Solomon Warner erected a flourmill on the slope of Sentinel Peak between 1874-75. This mill led some people to refer to Sentinel Peak as Warner's Mill during that time.

I need to say a very big Thank You to Chris of Epic Adventure Rides. He dedicated two days of his time to helping us film around Page, Arizona. Many of the shots you see in this video would not have been possible without his help. If you're in Page, I highly recommend reaching out to him and going on an Epic Adventure:
For our 12th video in our Blank by Drone series, we bring you to the dramatic landscapes of Arizona! It has been almost a year and a half since our last Blank by Drone video, but we're happy we FINALLY got around to editing this one.
We filmed this on the tail end of our 14-month RV trip around the country. We were driving from California back to Maryland, and spent about a week in Arizona. It is such a beautiful state, and we were able to witness some pretty dramatic weather during our time there as well.
If you have the opportunity to travel to Arizona, you should do it! Make sure you give yourself enough time to take it in and enjoy it.
Here's the equipment used for this video:
Drone - DJI Inspire 1 Raw -
Camera - Panasonic GH4 -
Lens - Lumix 7mm-14mm -
And here's a thorough list of the equipment I use for my filmmaking:
These are Amazon Associate links. If you're interested in buying some of this equipment, following these links and buying from there won't cost you anything extra, but will allow me to receive a small commission, giving me the opportunity to continue making creative videos.
