I saw this as a great opportunity to put some pictures from a unique summer trip to music and present it as a video through YouTube.
I did an interesting two week vacation with my oldest son in August; a trip that I have always wanted to do and will probably never do again. It is not something most people would do, so hopefully this makes it intriguing enough for you to click on the link and watch my 4-minute video. Ball to Boine to Burstall You may need to open the link in a new tab.
I used Windows Live Movie Maker to create the slide show. All pictures are my own and the music is from a music commons site. The song for the slide show is from the Jamendo website site. It is called Great Spirit from the album If It doesn’t last forever by Wooden Legs.
Here are links to parks that we journeyed through:
Banff National Park, Alberta
Peter Loughheed Provincial Park, Alberta
As we were out of cell phone range for the entire trip, we communicated using my son’s smartphone that connected through Bluetooth to a satellite messenger device called SPOT that we carried with us. The communication was one way only, but it gave us the opportunity to let family and friends know that we were okay every day. Here is the link to the SPOT Connect system.
