Google Maps

As I continue to think of ways to make this blog better, I am now working on adding a Google map of the hike to each blog entry.  I am entering these maps by hand and not from GPS, so the accuracy is not the best.  In particular, the maps are designed only to give you an idea as to the trail's route.  Also, since the Google map does not consider every curve in the trail bed, the distance calculation given by the Google map will almost always underestimate the actual length of the trail.  The best estimate I have for the trail length is still given in the introduction of the trail description.
