Sprawl and why we love it! (commute video)

Saturday morning I went to the grocery store, but first a 40 mile adventure. It's great to be carfree everything is a commute
I headed up to the land of the rich. Where density doesn't exists, but MUPs are larger than driveways.
So take a tour where bicycles are brought on top of cars and runners use the bike lane.
8:12 x2
I really am going to miss this place if I ever leave. I don't think I could ever go back to riding along parked cars in dense traffic. Well ok maybe I can, but I wouldn't want to.

Nice video. Did you clear the streets just to shoot this? Where were the cars?

BTW, you cast a long shadow...

You should see this place at 8 pm on Sunday. Some days I see no autos at all it is down right spooky. If you look at the map there is no cut through traffic so every one either lives up here or is going to enjoy the place. And then of course the roads super wide.

Yea I love when I can get a shadow in there.


Yea rusted root worked really for the set.
I am glad you enjoyed it.

Thank you all !
