To get the full immersive experience, I've prepared a 360 degree panorama:
W N E S
Click on the panorama to see the full size [size Kb].
Or you can view it interactively using this panorama viewer [size Mb -- warning, this will take a while to load on a modem connection].
If you have trouble viewing this file, you can also download this executable, save it to your desktop, then double-click on it to view the panorama. The executable file contains a viewer that should work regardless of your web browser.
From left to right, the main features are:
1. blah blah valley
[ Group Photo]
[ Crazy shot ]
[ Views of other peaks ]
I took a couple video clips which may be viewed using Windows Media Player. If using a modem, the broadband version will take very long, so a reduced-quality dial-up version is available:
Clip 1: Broadband [size Mb] or Dial-up [size Kb]
These files are in Windows Media Player format, so they should load automatically if you're on a Windows computer. There is no sound (in case you were expecting some).
