He flew right over the Overlook Hotel, or something that resembled it. How cool to see humans from a birds eye view. I wonder if in his little bird brain he could appreciate the magnificence of the scenery.

"right over the Overlook Hotel"

Actually it's a cable car terminus on the Mer de glace, in the French Alps.

Fly on, Little Wing.

"I got the idea like, when we was in Monterey, and I just happened to…just looking at everything around. So I figured that I take everything I see around and put it maybe in the form of a girl maybe, something like that, you know, and call it 'Little Wing,' in other words...just fly away. Everybody really flying, and they’s really in a nice mood, like the police and everybody was really great out there. So I just took all these things and put them in one very, very small little matchbox, you know, into a girl and then do it. It was very simple, you know."

Very simple, for you, Mr. Hendrix.

That's the French Alps, apparently. Chamonix. Stunning whatever the location.

Very Cool. But I have to say that it looks very much like videos taken from 'FPV' RC airplanes. For example:

You can see how he'd think he was clearing a windmill tower but get chopped-up by the rotating blade.

As a cartographer, it's a view I'm very naturally drawn to. Not very different than I imagined. And how cool would it be to migrate?
