California to New York: A Complete Road Trip
This is a complete road trip compilation from Santa Monica, California to New York City over eight different days from June-September, 2017 - all recorded in time-lapse at 4fps (nearly 100,000 frames total). Of the 3,253 miles (5,235 kilometers) driven, about 3 miles of this drive is missing, mostly in Colorado near Poncha Springs. Nearly all of this drive was done in daytime, but there is about 10 minutes of this video done in darkness in Arizona (about 1:00:00 to 1:10:00). The weather was good for the most part, except from Pennsylvania all the way to the Bronx, before clearing up in Manhattan. This trip also includes driving through the solar eclipse of August 21 in Nebraska (at about 3:30:00), as well as driving over the old Tappan Zee Bridge in upstate NY, which permanently closed a month later with the opening of the new Mario M Cuomo Bridge adjacent to it.
The states passed through are
New Mexico (1:40:26-1:41:09)
West Virginia (5:39:13-5:40:48 & 5:47:09-5:51:52)
Pennsylvania (5:40:48-5:47:09 & 6:04:43-6:32:49)
New York (6:32:49-6:50:03)
The highest elevation of the drive was 11,539 ft (3,517 m) at 2:28:10. The highest elevation anywhere on the U.S. interstate system is 11,158 ft (3,401 m) at 2:33:41. Both of these elevations are two of the three continental divide crossings; the other, at 2:04:38 (10,856 ft / 3,309 m), is the first.
The hottest temperature of this trip was 110 F (43 C) in Needles, California (about 0:40:16), and the coldest temperature of this trip was 53 F (11 C) in Tusayan, Arizona (about 1:10:04) - only about 230 miles (370 km) from Needles.

The Ghost Town of Bonanza Colorado
- Music by
Last spring we made a trip down to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. We decided to take a different route home than we normally take so from the Sand Dunes we headed north on Highway 285 in the San Luis Valley towards Poncha Springs, Colorado. On the way we discovered there was a turnoff (CO Rd L156) close to the small town of Villa Grove which took us to the old ghost town of Bonanza, Colorado....

Best Hiking Trails in Salida CO | Creekside Chalets | (970) 539-6953
This is a quick video highlighting the best hiking trails in Salida CO It provides a quick overview of six local trails, each of which has its own special qualities. The video begins with the Hunts Lake Trail. The lake itself is peaceful and picture-perfect while the trail up features some breathtaking valley views. The Browns Creek Waterfall Trail is very impressive, especially in those summers after a snowy winter. The trail travels through meadows and forests, so it offers a nice variety of scenery. If you're hiking in July or August, you're sure to be amazed by the wildflowers on Greens Creek Trail. The trail has a good mix of tree-covered and open sections, although it is moderately difficult. If you're used to high elevations, you might want to consider taking the Waterdog Lakes trail. It's not very long, but it does max out at 11,394 feet above sea level. The trail features wonderful scenery along the way and gorgeous alpine lakes at the top. The Rainbow Trail covers 12.5 miles, making it a good choice if you're looking for a day hike. It's fairly easy with little elevation gain but no shortage of fantastic views. Finally, the video covers the Arkansas Hills Trail System. This system is located close to downtown Salida and it has over a dozen trails, most of which are under two miles in length. Hikers who want some variety will love these trails.
