Coal Mine Canyon Arizona in 4K UHD

Coal Mine Canyon is a series of deep canyons and ravines located on the border between the Hopi and Navajo Reservations in north central Arizona. It contains red, yellow, white and brown siltstone and sandstone which provide amazing rings of contrasting color. It is part of several canyons and tributaries of the Moenkopi Wash which eventually flow into the Little Colorado River at Cameron. Our crew ventured there near sunset, just after thunderstorms had rolled through, creating dark clouds and a rainbow in several of the shots. Well worth the visit.

Filmed entirely with the DJI Mavic Pro 2 in 4K UHD. Edited in FCP. Music: Garageband.

    Wow! Never heard of this spectacular place. My thoughts ask how all this got here. The southwest has so much variety that you find something strange and the next day something even more strange. A+ drone scenes. Thank you.

    Please do not let people know locations of special places, especially on Native American Reservations. People only destroy and trash them. Tourists have torn up native ruins all over Arizona and wrote graffiti. Let others discover them on their own. It’s okay to share pics or video. Just respect the privacy of the people and protect the land.
