    Beautiful drive. Love the “factoids”, especially the one about lack of gas services. Great video and thanks for sharing!

    @FreewayBrent haha . the trees made the ride nice and that wind was really blowing hard .. if i continue this series i will have footage of 64 .. a lil up the road they must of have a controlled burn not to long before (3-5 days prior) of the forest.. its bad to see , but it guarantees the forest future and continued life. i knew it was the largest in north america , but i didnt know it was the largest in the world. thanks for watching Brent.

    @edgexxi i was in phoenix just 6 hours earlier . temps were almost 100, i arrived in flagstaff temps droped to the 20s , and overnight in the gradn canyon, az droped to 14 degrees and 50 mph winds. so that was defantly something. it was cold.

    Actually, this is a side comment, but once I started seeing the trees swaying in time-lapsed form around 5;30, it kinda reminded me of that one scene in the Wizard of Oz, where the apple trees come alive, while Dorothy and friends are walking down the yellow brick road, lol.

    Great work, my friend. That was actually my first time ever seeing US 180. I’ll say this much; it’s definitely more of an interesting ride than AZ 64 (at least in my opinion). Did you get a chance to check out downtown Flagstaff? One of the most atmospheric downtowns in the desert southwest, especially when there’s a big event in town.

    Definitely not the kind of drive you would expect to find in Arizona, especially when you’re headed towards the Grand Canyon. A pleasant change of pace, I must say. Nice work, bud.

    @eluko79: Flagstaff actually lies within the largest ponderosa pine forest in the entire world. It’s definitely a complete contrast from the desert landscape of Phoenix.

    There’s snow up there on Humphery’s Peak, meanwhile in mid July temps in Tucson were in the mid 100’s w/ humidity hovering around 40%, 110’s in Phoenix.

    Enjoyed that, Flagstaff looks pretty cool, nice soundtrack too, thumbs up!

    Hey ScrewdUPClick! Your videos are always among the best in the highway video genre. This one’s definitely one of your all-time best. Greetings from Nogales, AZ!

    @GeoffJennyOliver yes this is the highest point i have been in my lifetime on ground level. not to many people can say they have been -200 ft below sea level and 8k feet +

    thanks everyone for commenting , was unsure this would attract attention , but it was a nice ride.

  17. ScrewdUPClickV2 on December 13th, 2010 1:22 pm

    @eluko79 yes , i;d imagine that would be t otally different in the winter months when temps drop well below 0

  18. ScrewdUPClickV2 on December 13th, 2010 1:43 pm

    @adogg619 i bet that was a hell of a drive .. i traveled az-64 i believe at ngiht right along the grand canyon . that was freaky.

  19. haljackey on December 13th, 2010 2:22 pm

    Looks like a beautiful drive

  20. Bryant5493 on December 13th, 2010 2:34 pm

    Nice vid. I like the open country there.

  21. GeoffJennyOliver on December 13th, 2010 2:53 pm

    …great drive – nothing in mainland Aus above 8000′ – even mountain peaks..

  22. ScrewdUPClickV2 on December 13th, 2010 3:13 pm

    @sjvirchow I-17 @ I-40 the northern terminus of i-17 to be exact ..

  23. sjvirchow on December 13th, 2010 3:51 pm

    Where was that in the intro of the video? Looked like Arizona…
