MOUNT EVEREST (29,029 ft ASL) versus ABACO (134 ft ASL)…


MOUNT EVEREST (29,029 ft ASL) versus ABACO (134 ft ASL)…

I only occasionally go completely off-piste and post something that has nothing whatsoever to do with Abaco, the Bahamas or indeed with wildlife in any of its many forms. This is one such occasion. The Guardian newspaper (online) has put up the most amazing interactive image of Mount Everest, which can be zoomed, panorama’d and 360˚’d. The highest point on Abaco is 134 feet above sea level, so best prepare for altitude sickness. I found this really fascinating, especially zooming in on the little pile of apparent litter – actually a base camp. Normal service will be resumed after Christmas…
