The mapping function provides an easy way to navigate the site and serves as a "one-stop-shop" for all information pertaining to my trip activities. You will use the maps to search for trip "points of interest" (ie, mountain biking in Arches UT or maybe hiking in Yellowstone WY). Once you've located a point of interest, the site will provide links to detailed information concerning the activities and events surrounding your selected point of interest.

A map of the United States is displayed at the highest level. At this level you get a 30,000 feet view of my trip route, from start to finish. All visited states are colored in green and every overnight stay is designated with the little red flag that's stickpinned into my route.
Interested in more detailed information about my goings-on within a particular state? Well, all you have to do is click on the state of interest, and the website will immediately produce a detailed map of the selected state.
Give it a try!
Figure 1.1 illustrates my route across the northern section of the country. It consists of many stops with concentrations of stops found at interesting sites (ie, Yellowstone in Wyoming). The route is fairly accurate, however it was drawn free-hand so some minor errors may or may not exist.

From the United States map you can click on any state to get a detailed map of that state. At the state map level you'll find my trip's path highlighted in black and sprinkled with various flags designating various activities as well as my overnight stays. Clicking on any of the activity flags will display information pertaining only to that activity. Clicking on a pink camping flag will provide easy access to the sum total of the day's activities and events in detail.
At the state map level you can access adjacent states by clicking on them, so there is no need to go back to the map of the United States to pick any state adjacent to the state you are currently viewing.
The map below has been "activated" so you can test navigate to any one of my venues in and around Wyoming.
Give it a whirl!
