We had our friends from SkyPixel Media join us for a day in the desert before the New Year. While I often like to introduce them as “homeless”, Blake and Rachel are on a nomadic adventure. Currently, they’re based somewhere in Baja and travel around the country producing some amazing film work. You definitely should check out some of their amazing work on their website.

Butcher Jones Recreation Area is one of our favorite places for “quick” desert days. It’s about 45-minutes from our home in Gilbert, offers amazing views, and great trails. Personally, I like it better in the buggy than the dirtbikes, just because the sand gets thick in some areas, but either way, it’s a blast!

Blake let Val play with some of the camera controls on their drone over Saguaro Lake.


We always love any excuse to show off the desert.

Thanks for a great time!
