Watch as this drone takes flight over the eastern slopes of the Franklin Mountains, capturing the untamed rugged beauty of the mountain. The sweeping views of the landscape are breathtaking.

The video was shot by Derek Spears for Save Our Sierras. The group is trying to stop a proposed residential development that is planned for the area.

Spears previously used a drone to give us a birds-eye view of the Star on the Mountain, and an amazing perspective of Mt. Cristo Rey.
