As you’re probably aware, since it’s all I ever blog about anymore, back in June, my husband Jeff, our friend Jake and I went on an epic roadtrip. We drove from Cleveland, OH to Phoenix, Arizona, spent a few nights at a resort, then drove home a new route. It was an incredible trip!
- Ohio to Arizona & back
- the abandoned Anasazi Inn
- Mel Gould’s
- Mountainview Cemetery + Wild Horses
- road tripping – abandoned gas station
- ghost town – Piedmont, WY
- ghost town – Two Guns, AZ
- Twin Arrows, AZ
Jeff and I go to the desert every year but we normally fly. This was a whole different ballgame! It was a blast to see so many new places.
My original plan was to make videos about each place we visited but once I got home and looked at my footage, I realized I didn’t shoot even close to enough video to do that. I wasn’t too happy about the idea of condensing the trip into one video but I started working on it anyway. About halfway through, I really started to love it and now, it’s one of my favorite things ever. We’ve watched it about a million and a half times already.
14 states, literal days driving, ghost towns upon ghost towns and a ton of special memories all jam packed into six minutes and thirty seconds.
I ended up borrowing some footage from Jeff so that I’d make an appearance in the video too. He shot individual videos of a lot of the places shown in my video so I’ve linked as many of those as YouTube would allow in this video. Keep your eyes peeled if there’s a place you want to see more of, chances are I’ve blogged about it (linked above) or he made a video! You can find Jeff’s channel here. His video of the abandoned motel in Arizona is my favorite.
Video shot with the GoPro Hero 7 Black. Definitely one of the best purchases I made this year!
