The camera is off level, and bloody bug hit the lens, but here it is until I can go back and make a good video.
The Fort Davis Scenic Loop with a side trip to Prada and the Valentine TX post office in a little over 6 minutes.

First time I drove 166 I couldn't resist stopping and climbing Sawtooth with 4 of my kids.  We were later informed that we wewre lucky we didn't get shot as it is private land.  Whoops!

The video is spectacular and the sound track even more so.  I am also a fan of Ennio Morricone.  My favorite of his is "Insanity and End Titles" from the movie, Fraulein Doktor.  Hear here: 

Having driven the Fort Davis Scenic Loop many times I am pleased to be treated to the 6+ minute whirl as I sit in Pennsylvania longing for the Big Bend.
