Each web page containing a slide is coded for an overlay that contains navigation links. When the mouse cursor is moved over the slide, the links will appear. To view the slide, position the mouse cursor off the slide. The navigation links include forward (next slide) and back (previous side) links. In addition, there is a link back to this page and a link to the topographic map appropriate for the location. The topographic maps open in a separate browser tab. The topographic maps are labeled with the locations for each photograph.

You may wish to start by looking at a topographic map that covers the entire trip. This opens in a separate browser tab and does not include any navigation links to other pages. Then if you wish to follow trip from start to finish, then use the link for the first slide.
