Old Fall River Road
« on: September 17, 2023, 07:50:22 AM »

Slow link, so I'm doing 5 minutes at a time. Haven't got to the top yet, but the rest should be here in the next few days.

Gopro Hero 10, on top of a Nissan Armada. My boss felt I'd gone as far as I can go with my $20 Walmart dashcam.

I drove this road a year ago in a rental Toyota Camry  :) :) I ended up in a herd of elk about 85% of the way through the road. Absolutely loved it.  I stopped a couple of times to check out some nearby waterfalls.

For those craving context, this is in Rocky Mountain National Park.

I don't live far from this, but had never been up it. I'm actually re-editing all this because there's an issue with parts 8 and 9. I have some chunks out of order.

I was driving a 2020-ish Nissan Armada, but it's funny you mention Camry. My normal beater car is my 1999 Camry which just. won't. stay. DEAD.

Thanks for checking it out, though!

Going to Idaho Springs today, and Georgetown tomorrow. It will be mostly unremarkable 93/119/6/70 footage, but sometimes the camera catches cool stuff, too.
The suction cup for this thing blows me away. There are times I'm going over 80 on the highway, and an oncoming truck comes by. I figured that would be the moment it lets go. Nope.
