What This Drone Footage Caught In Georgia Will Drop Your Jaw

Just a few years ago, the thought of having your own personal drone sounded insane. Nobody could fathom owning your own aerial video camera to capture life’s moments higher than you ever could have imagined. But now, drones are an absolute reality, and some of the footage captured by these curious machines will leave you stunned.

Consider the drone footage captured in Tallulah Gorge State Park by FlyWorx Productions. What makes this footage so inspiring is the fact that this machine can collect video, photo and aerial views—the likes of which our naked eye cannot. We don’t have the capability to fly directly over a waterfall on a whim, imagining the mist of the water against our face. We don’t have the capability to climb hundreds of feet among the treetops to feel the sway of the wind or hear nothing but the faint echo of an eagle. But with these drone videos, we are just that much closer to making these possibilities more of a reality. Our imaginations are truly being cultivated, thanks to this new form of technology.

Already jaw-dropping without the aid in technological views, Tallulah Gorge is one of the most spectacular canyons in the eastern U.S.. At about two miles long and nearly 1,000 feet deep, it truly is a magical place. Visitors can hike rim trails to several overlooks, or they can obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor—but even traipsing across a suspension bridge and swaying 80 feet above the rocky floor won’t provide the same views as this drone does.

Have a look at the drone footage of Talulah Gorge. Prepare to be inspired.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
