Wild Ride in Joshua Tree!!

I'm trying something new for this post. Never posted a video before, and based on feedback I've read on other blogs, I'm not very confident that this video will post correctly. But only one way to find out! 

The newer iPhones (and likely other phones as well) make taking video a snap. I'm old enough to remember how hard it used to be to take decent videos... all the gear needed, the expense, etc.). So easy now, and the icing on the cake is that, with a simple push of a button, I can choose between standard video, slo-mo video, and time-lapse! How cool is that!! So here's a time-lapse video taken as I was driving up the road to Keys View in Joshua Tree National Park. It's a little wild, so buckle up!

Here's what Keys View looks like from the top.

  13. Marvelous shots. I expected a more sandy or stony road on your video but it jumped enough already. Since 6 years now al my camera's are capable of video but have until now never used it. Shall give it a try once.
