a toolkit for A Birder's Guide to Belize
Go to "paths - trails GREEN"
Double click "Mt. Margaret elevation profile", but
do not check the box
Make sure the checkbox for "paths - highways
ORANGE" is checked
Google Earth will reposition to the peak. So
few climbers have hiked to the top that the peak is not accurately know,
but two web sources for the peak are shown. The orange path in the
upper right is Hummingbird Highway.
Now, in the Places list, right click on "Mt.
Margaret elevation profile" and select "Show Elevation Profile."
The chart shows the elevation gain from Hummingbird
Highway (on the left side) to the peak and beyond. Although the
direct line distance from highway to peak is only a bit over one mile,
for a very good hiker it would take a day to reach the top.
This path also produces an interesting TOUR.
