For almost 9 years driving this road many times every year, I always wanted to capture it for myself. I attempted to try to capture it with DSLR before but they are too heavy and it needs very strong support’s arms to keep camera in one place for 10-11 hours. GoPro was a perfect choice!
I have shot total of over 16000 pictures @5Mpx. It was set to shoot one picture every 2 seconds. If all pictures were converted into 24fps video, I got highly detailed 23 minutes time lapse. No one would watched it for so long So, I had to speed up most of the straight parts of the freeway.
Total distance is about 633 miles / 1012 km. Oregon in January was supposed to have snow in the mountains but this winter it has very little of precipitation but it still showed true difference between Oregon and California in the winter or spring.
