Here it is - the 10 Ouray FJ Summit trails and associated trip photos. There is a lot of information here. You'll be able to fly along your chosen trails and click to check out photos along the way.




The Google Earth file is below. Don't have Google Earth? Download it free here.

Almost every icon in this file has a clickable photo. Over the next few days before the Summit I hope you'll send me some of your photos so I can add them in:

Pink Camera icon: Click for photo
Yellow $ icon: Mines and Ghost towns. Click for photo.
Red line: One of the ten FJ Summit trails.
Red pushpin: The trailhead or end of the trail.
Blue waves: Lakes. Click for photo.
Green mountains: Mountain peak; no photo.

In Google Earth, your mouse wheel does a great job of zooming in or out. The pan and tilt control at the top right of the screen lets you fly through each trail. If you bring your laptop and GPS in your FJ, you'll be able to follow along as you go.

Enjoy... and please send me your photos!

Thank you Thong those look great - I'll put them in right now. Do you know where either of those two mines are specifically, or even a name?

You're welcome Todd. I'm having a senior moment right now and can't recall exactly where those mines are. Hopefully, someone else can chime in (like mbisson). :(

edit: OK, I think this one is called Camp Bird.
