http://burdhikemap.blogspot.com/p/google-maps-view.html

Bob Burd is one of the most prolific peakbaggers in U.S. He has a tremendous number of well-documented trip reports of his hikes in the western U.S. which include photos & annotated maps on his website. Since I like to peruse hikes based on location, I did a little scripting and made Google Map & Earth kml views of all the peaks he has visited. When you click on the peak, the name with a link to Bob's trip report will show up. There is a individual page for both the Map and Earth views, updated last on 6/5/2013. This was pretty low-effort without much refinement, so feel free to provide feedback.

Obviously, he's covered a great amount of the peaks in the San G's too.

Having hiked with Bob on a couple Sierra Challenges, he is a great guy and deserves many thanks for all of the beta he has provided the hiking and climbing community.  

How does he bag so many peaks?  He's stupid fast.

That's actually a pretty useful resource Ze. Incredible how much territory Bob Burd has covered.

Bob is one of my hiking heroes.  He is also nice enough to answer an occasional email question I have on particular areas.

That map is insane!  Nice work Ze.
