Oh man! I had no idea Mars was colored so brightly! I thought it was just red, orange, and brown. Wow, I want to go to Mars now!

Forget the Mt Baldy century I was hoping to ride someday (up and down Mt Baldy four times). I want to ride up and down Olympus Mons! More than a double metric century for a direct ascent, with over 24,000 meters of vertical. Now if only Virgin Galactic would start flying to Mars...

Hmmmm, what's with the sections that say "No imagery available at this zoom level. Try zooming out or click here to center on a high-resolution insert."? I think Google knows something that we don't. Have we already sent people to Mars? Conspiracy!!

I don't get it, every couple hundred miles to the east or west, I keep seeing the same features over and over again...

Yeah, I don't think it's complete. Just one square that's tiled over and over.
