I got a smile from your musical selection: Hall of the Mountain King.
I appreciated that you trimmed the video. As beautiful as the scenery is, a 30 minute video of driving down the road would get rather long. Consider making it even shorter. I understand how difficult that can be. I struggle with it myself. I means a lot more to you than others, especially people who were not with you and have never been there. I'm not being critical of the filming or the subject matter. I'm just trying to offer one opinion as a third-party observer.
A "filming" thought for next time:
Turn the camera into the turn, rather than just pointing it straight forward. I think that will make the video more watchable.
I remember years ago, watching a special feature on the making of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom." In that movie they have a wild ride through a series of tunnels on out-of-control mining carts. The film crew road on a roller coaster over and other and tried different filming techniques, and found turning to camera to look at where you were "going to go" before you actually got the achieved the best effect.
This does assume you have a passenger to operate the camera. And in that case, get a car with a sunroof and have the passenger stand up to film so you don't get any reflections in the window. (Though safety would be a concern, so maybe that's not a good idea after all.)
Anyway, you now have a reason to go on the drive again.
Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed watching it.

Currently editing with Studio 19, making movies in iClone 6, and exploring Substance Designer... I just wish I could be doing more of it.
