Driving State Highway 55 At 600 MPH

Have you ever wanted to travel up Idaho state highway 55 from Summit Ridge Road in Boise County to Valley County at 600 miles per hour? Click here. (It's about a 30 MB download--I wouldn't try this on dialup.)

I took this film on a clear blue day, but rather late in the afternoon. I was hoping that the sun angle would give me lots of very dramatic shadows--but mostly, it gave me direct sun in the lens when headed southwest, and great accentuated visible water spot stains when traveling south. I should either film when the sun is high in the sky, or when I am only driving away.

I toyed with the idea of putting up the higher resolution versions of this video, but they are like 370 MB and 555 MB. Nope! They look better (crisper), but unless you are watching this on a TV, it won't justify the download time.
