I set out just before sunrise hoping to film my drive over one of Silicon Valley’s best roads but as I passed through the cloud ceiling my camera lens accumulated so much water that the footage is unusable. Posted below is the first 5 minutes at 400x. The rest of the video is totally obscured and edited out.

The drive was beautiful: after breaking through the clouds (what I’m driving through in the video) it was clear skies and sunny with the ceiling at least a mile below me. I saw two groups of deer and a few rabbits scampered across the road in front of me. As I made my descent I saw soft fluffy clouds nestled between green hills as mourning doves scattered at the sound of my motor as I passed by their perch.

This road at dawn is truly a hidden gem. Sorry about the footage, maybe next time.
