You know the drill: don’t try this at home! (I’ll leave it to you to figure out just what that is.) This FotoFeed image shows where I was.
What we have here is a cool video I just created of footage shot while descending from the west side of the Rio Grande gorge to the Taos Junction Bridge. That’s NM 567, if I’m not mistaken, a rocky dirt road in fairly horrible condition that plunges hundreds of feet down to the river, mostly without guard rails. I did some creative editing and added my own sound track which some of you will recognize.
This one really does need to be viewed full-screen if you can manage it. The video is 1080 x 720 HD and plenty loud once it gets rolling. At first I regretted the rare cloudy day, but then realized the gloom produced the perfect atmosphere. At one point there’s a yelp that sounds like a dog in the cab of my ’87 Ford F-150, except that I don’t have a dog, so it might have been me. (?)
I had reason to, uh, yelp…
