California to New York: A Complete Road Trip

This is a complete road trip compilation from Santa Monica, California to New York City over eight different days from June-September, 2017 – all recorded in time-lapse at 4fps (nearly 100,000 frames total). Of the 3,253 miles driven, about 3 miles of this drive is missing, mostly in Colorado near Poncha Springs. Nearly all of this drive was done in daytime, but there is about 10 minutes of this video done in darkness in Arizona (about 1:00:00 to 1:10:00). The weather was good for the most part, except from Pennsylvania all the way to the Bronx, before clearing up in Manhattan. This trip also includes driving through the solar eclipse of August 21 in Nebraska.
