Google Earth

I'll admit it - I'm addicted to Google Earth - it's fun, free and I get the same simple pleasure out of flying through the Grand Canyon as I do looking at the house where I grew up.

Anyway the quality of the images for our neck of the woods have improved a great deal. Here's the route I took on the hike on Saturday as near as I can figure. (Click on the picture to see it bigger).Notice that big S-curve south of Mud Pond. I didn't have to do that but I hiked down the length of the pond before finding a connector trail that brought me up to the skidoo trail. According to this it was about a four mile hike, but it could have been shorter if I had cut out that loop and if I knew better where I was going.
