Why this album?

I love Google Earth. It's that simple. I love scanning through the topography in preparation of a hike or "re-live" every step of it over and over again after uploading the GPS file to it after a hike. It also creates countless ideas of new hikes or combination of hikes and trails. This album serves as a place where I "deposit" all my Google Earth images.

To everybody who looks at them for one reason or another: enjoy and let them inspire you to visit those places soon.

NoonduelerGreat album!


Voted 10/10

Google Earth is mind blowing. So are all the USGS 7.5 minute maps that led to such geographical precision.
Do you know how from plane or chopper flights the USGS were able to determine the number of 40' intervals over such a vastly complicated country? Aerial sonar?
Maybe a distance to elevation equation.

Need to check to see if any FBI agents are parked outside without leaving the comfort of the screen.
