Finally, someone has found a good use for drones (flying sushi across a restaurant just wasn’t cutting it). Jason Ching flew one over the jaw droppingly gorgeous Iliamna Lake in Southern Alaska. Amidst the expansive wilderness and serpentine river that leads out to the Gulf of Alaska are thousands of salmon jumping upstream to eventually spawn in the lake. There are so many you could practically just stick your hands in the water and grab one. If you weren’t considering a trip to Alaska before watching this, you definitely are now.
