The coolest map tool

This puppy is at the top of one of the minor peaks that is only a ten-minute hike from Trail Ridge Road, in Rocky Mountain National Park. If you line up your eye with a notch above the words along the edge - and the knob in the center, you will see that peak. The map tells both elevation of the peak and its distance from you.
