Digital Exploration #1

Historic Mount Wilson - Angeles National Forest

Founding Dex member Rob Lindstrom sets the plan for the expedition. The group will first be led around the area by guide Don Nicholson to get the lay of the land. The group will then break into 3 digitally equipped teams, armed with a digital video or still camera to explore a theme.

The group tours the 100" Telescope and heads toward Echo Point for inspiration.
