Adventure Series, Ep. 3: Sycamore Canyon/Perkinsville Road
Nestled deep in the Kaibab, Prescott, and Coconino National Forests, Sycamore Canyon is one of the few pristine and untouched environments left today. In 1972, Sycamore Canyon was the first area designated as a Wilderness Area by the State of Arizona, so there are no roads, hiking trails, or crowds inside the canyon. The walls of the canyon are marked by colorful cliffs, soaring pinnacles, and a desert riparian area, making it one of the world's rarest habitats. The road to Sycamore Point is a 5 mile long gnarly, beat up road impassable in all vehicles except 4x4's, but if you're willing to push the envelope and explore a little, you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts. We then top it all off with a drive down Perkinsville Road, which offers stunning vistas of landscapes ranging from 3,500 to over 7,000 feet elevation, but is certainly not for the faint of heart.
I apologize for the shaky video in places. Even the best anti-shake in the world would have been no match for those gnarly, unmaintained back roads.
ULTIMATE NORTHERN ARIZONA HIGH DESERT JOYRIDE
Filmed on Old Perkinsville Road outside Chino Valley, AZ which leads to many other towns. Areas nearby are Paulden, Sedona, Jerome, Cottonwood, Drake, and Clarkdale. I used my GoPro Hero 3 to film this. I should have used my Hero 5 for ultimate clarity. Still though, the video came out good. :)

Sedona Arizona Most beautiful in America
Sedona Ariz. has been listed as the most beautiful area in America...It is hard to argue as you approach the high desert country and are greeted by awesome geological spires,pinnacles, buttes, and domes of the red rocks.Native Americans consider this a very sacred spiritual and healing place.Many come especially for the spas, and relaxiation of the area.It is not all spas tho as outstanding eateries, wines vineyards, hike, bike,jeep tracks, museums, art galleries give this beautiful rugged resort area the best of all places to live. The four seasons and close to Flagstaff give access to skiing and other winter sports or the sunshine on the desert is great to explore a wide variety of fauna and cactus...Oak Creek Canyon will be your most fav drive you ever took...A great place for snow birds to relax away the winter and /or live year round...

The Life of Me, Garchen Buddhist Institute Temple, GoPro Hero4
The Life of Me, Video Series, Video 2
Yesterday my family and I went into the Phoenix back country to explore a Buddhist Temple. It was a magical and spiritual place that if you get a chance to go to in your life time recommend to do so.
It is just outside of Chino Arizona, and offers breath taking views of the surrounding landscape that my video does not do justice to .
