    Glad you're inspired. These were two of the best weeks we've ever had!

    I did all the geocoding for the photos on Picasa now using the tools on the site (basically select the pic and click on the location on the map). When you are viewing your Picasa album you just go to "Album Map" from the Edit menu. Pretty easy to do for most of the hiking photos since the locations tend to stand out in my mind. There are other options though. I've experimented with a utility called RoboGEO (info here: which lets you use the track log from your GPS to geocode you pictures using the GPS and camera timestamps. Works pretty well.

    Keep close to Nature's heart...
    and break clear away, once in awhile,
    and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
