I have a bad inner ear infection and vertigo, so I only made it about a minute before I started feeling nauseous, but sure looks pretty there. My commute is pretty much a nightmare.

Most excellent! I thought I had a good commute, but yours is even more scenic than mine!
You're lucky to ride that every day. How many miles is it?

It's a small Flip camera; clamped to the rear rack. At home the video file had to be converted and edited.

To bad the traffic was so bad on the day you chose to film! Very cool area, yes, I am envious. How far was the ride? Fall changes must be awesome in NH. Appreciate what you have, thanks for the sample!

This route is about 7.5 miles. There is a different 5 mi. route (but you can see why I do this one). The fall colors are late and a bit muted this year. But it's still a great location.
