Google Elevation Map--Anywhere on the Planet!! 6 Days, 21 Hours ago  
The elevations on our rides are all over the map and sometimes we're left wondering. So today I found this map that shows it all.

If you plug any address into the upper left window and then scroll down it'll show it on the map and list the elevation. You can also just zoom into the map and click anywhere, such as a mountain pass or your favorite camping site, and it'll list that elevation.

Just plugged in Death Valley, CA (Inyo County) at -262'!

Pretty cool!!

Cool map, our lot at Duck Creek Village, Utah is 8800' but I never rode the bike up there.

LOL I drove through Florida for the first time ever in April and I was shocked to see that Florida's highest elevation, Britton Hill, is just 345'! The whole state's like a long green parking lot!!!

My little Garmin 1350 has altitude on the display as an option. Got it down to 7 feet above sea level at the Gulf of Mexico last weekend, and up to 10,286 feet at Taos Ski Village, NM back in the spring.

Yes a cool tool however not very user friendly on my iPad. Ok it's fine with an address but just looking around it's tough. It would be a great addition to google maps!!
As far as I know my high was somewhere north of halfway up pikes peak, low could have been riding through the imperial valley in scal.
This link is a pic of that indication- it's not my pic but it's what you see on the sugar plant

Shortcut on desktop. thanks. There are phone apps for elevation that are pretty cool... you could just touch the screen and it gives you elevation,.. however they were battery suckers so I uninstalled them.
