Have you ever stared at a horizon full of peaks and wondered, “Hey, what’s that?” Now you can figure it out (once you get home, that is).

Visit http://www.heywhatsthat.com/ and navigate the map to the spot that you desire. Click on the “new panorama” button and fill in some blanks. Wait for a couple of minutes and you will get a full-blown 360 degree pano of surrounding peaks. Click on the red triangle and learn more about the peak. The map belows gives a birds-eye view and distance from you to the summit.
