Summer 2011 Over Lake Powell With My Wife


By Shane Ellison

Filmed this epic video while over Lake Powell with my wife. We were flying out of Montrose, CO to Las Vegas, NV to celebrate our 11th anniversary. As we climbed out of Montrose at 2pm, the heat bumps started pushing us around pretty hard. I decided to climb to 12,500ft to find smooth air but was disappointed. Not only was it bumpy, but windy too. Combined, turbulence, crab and lack of oxygen was making us dizzy and grumpy as hell. Plus, my lips felt like they were going to pop. (We live at sea level so I guess we needed more time to adjust.) I dropped to 8,500 and was greeted by the smooth, cool air of the lake.
