Rocky Mountain Park Time Lapse.
I got a glimpse into one of Colorado’s most historic roads yesterday and I thought it would be fun to showcase the time lapse here.
Fresh from a jaunt to Colorado, Beth’s sister, Bridgette, and brother-in-law, Mike, arrived home yesterday with this iPhone time lapse. We’ve both been longing for a road trip, especially since we weren’t able to take one last week to Toronto for TBEX because I got sick, so this really hit the spot.
The time lapse below is from Trail Ridge Road, one of Colorado’s 25 Scenic and Historic Byways. The historic road, which took a decade to build (1929-1939) links Estes Park and Grand Lake, cutting through Rocky Mountain National Park between the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake.
The divide is a place of high drama, and Trail Ridge Road is the finest place to encounter it without hiking miles of steep terrain. Built from 1929 to 1939, this route is the highest continuous auto road in the country and holds the highest byway distinction. It’s truly an all-American icon—the road itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Colorado.com
Mike said he captured the journey with the 99 cent iPhone app–Time Lapse Camera HD. We’ve used this app in the past too and can attest that it does a great job.
Where is your next road trip going to be to?
