Brenton Lengel “North to Maine” About the Appalachian Trail is Opening Off Broadway at the C.O.W. Theatre at 21 Clinton Street, New York.
North to Maine is the first play ever written about the Appalachian Trail and the
Thru-Hikers who walk it. Every year, in late March, nearly 2,000 people gather at
its southern terminus and attempt the feat of walking it, in its entirety, in a
single season. They come from all walks of life, and from all over the world. They
carry all their possessions on their backs, and sleep in tents and shelters along
the way, trusting their lives to providence, to the kindness of strangers, and to
their own hands. They do not walk for money, or fame; rather, they are driven to
walk, some would say compelled, by the journey itself.

The Lost River Ranger District promises reasonably recent photos by John and Melissa Fowler. Does it look steep?

The NFS has a summit webcam. However it is currently out of service as the summit facilities are being renovated. but be sure to click on the streaming webcam options as they seem to work although are very slow with the Java interface.

It might be argued that the only hill in all of Mississippi is Woodall Mountain. It’s virtually the only hill on the entire Iuka Quad which encompasses alot of the Tennessee Valley lowlands. Consequently, the hill is very striking and dominating. Here’s a map (exaggerated 3.5X) generated by 3DEM with an overlay of the Iuka Quad. The map briefly has a blur. WARNING: 1.6 meg mpg file.

This 3D anaglyph movie of Hawaii Island was generated by 3dem and is based on USGS DEM data downloaded from geoarchive.net It dramatically shows the difference between the massive and smooth Mauna Loa and the more compact although taller Mauna Kea. The notched area in the north is the Waipio Valley. This movie is particularly stunning if you have red-blue anaglyph glasses. 1.4 megs movie (more…)

3D anaglyph glasses used to be hard or quirky to find. But since the NASA used anaglyphs on its Mars mission (americasroof was actually consulted on this!!!) there are plenty of places to buy 3D anaglyphs. They are relatively cheap. You can just do a Google or Ebay search. You might also considering buy Spy Kids 3D which includes the glasses. To See other 3D Movies click on this Amazon Listmania list.

I have posted a 1.4 meg mpg movie depicting the differences between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. When you are close up and driving on Saddle Road the mountains look identical. However in the movie (which reflects 4x exaggeration of the Digital Elevation Model) you really see how smooth and massive the shield volcano Mauna Loa is while Mauna Kea has relatively puny mass and is very jagged. And Mauna Kea is no small mountain! The standard has always been that Mauna Kea is the world’s tallest mountain from base (below ocean level) to summit while Mauna Loa is the most massive. Mauna Loa will some point overtake Mauna Kea in height — give or take a few thousand years. Mauna Loa is still growing in the passive shield stage in which lava oozes out while Mauna Kea is leaving the passive shield stage and activity on it has been and will be explosive.

Richard Horne has a freeware program 3DEM which is the coolest DEM maniuplation program anywhere. The program can make stunning 3D rotation movies, 3D VRML worlds and it spectacularly visualizes Digital Elevation Model data. It is the source of the visualizations here.
