In searching on Google Maps this morning, I noticed something seemingly "slightly amiss" in the labels.

Zooming in, it seems that Google has decided to relocate Mt. Whitney to Yosemite Valley:

Naw... they just moved it.
Haven't seen the EIR, but we think that it is part of the plan to restrict vehicle access to Downtown Yosemite.

I noticed that yesterday. Thought it was a little weird that a Lower Yosemite Falls hike was listed on Mt. Whitney.

I noticed this myself a couple of days ago...thought at first it was some kind of temporary display problem. Since it's still there, I just reported it to Google...I really don't want to have to drive around Mt. Whitney when I drive through the Valley next month. wink

Well, Mt. Whitney's back in it's proper place on Google Maps although the description still says it's in Yosemite.

Well, the JMT suddenly got a lot easier.

No. It's still about a mile one way.
