I’ve gotten some nice feedback about my outdoor videos. That is a nice thing, even though I enjoy doing them so much that bad feedback probably wouldn’t deter me from stopping.
This one was a favorite. I found myself in the lower southeast portion of Utah, in and around the area called Bear’s Ears. Bear’s Ears has been in the news a lot the last few years, as it was designated a National Monument by President Obama and shrunk by President Trump, making it sadly an area of focused political strife. Thankfully, while the politics garnered a ton of attention, this area has remained strife-free, serene, quiet, and stunning. It probably is no surprise that I fall on the side of protecting this land at all costs, and being here, experiencing the beauty, only solidifies that.
I parked myself opposite Comb Ridge, which you can see in the background. A few years earlier my brother and I hiked to the edge of Comb Ridge, looking down on that spot where I filmed, plus north into what eventually becomes Canyonlands and south towards Arizona and Monument Valley.
I don’t think the best way to celebrate this land is blabbering on about how cool these new Matchbox cars are, but I did. And they surely merit that excitement, as this is a very cool batch. Matchbox continues dropping a cool new classic in each batch, with the ’79 Nova following the Capri and Savoy in the previous mixes. Add a nice group of licensed castings and this is a fantastic release.
Enjoy the video.
