Steven Ho creates an excellent tour of a recent mountaineering trip

Steven Ho has built some amazing things with Google Earth over the years, including things such as the Trip View Bowl, the World Marathon Majors, a panorama from the top of Mount Everest and a neat tribute to Steve Jobs where he turns Google Earth into a giant apple.
Steven is back again, this time with a tour that shows off a recent trip he went on. However, as we’ve come to expect from Steven, it has a lot of extra goodies built into it. You’ll see a 3D torocat bus driving them to the mountain, hiker icons as they walk, an animated path and photos that appear throughout the tour. It’s quite a neat way to see what the adventure was like for him.

Great job Steven!
