What is an eTour?
Within an eTour, you will be able to view pictures, videos, 360 degree panoramas, and listen to the sounds of Glacier with a click of your mouse. We have done our best to minimize the file size of eTours, but some feature files may be large and cumbersome for dial-up users. We think the wait to download this interactive and engaging experience is worth it though, and we have discovered new ways of reducing file sizes that will be implemented in future hikes. We have created however, a version of the eTour for dial-up users.
What You Need
How it Works
Take a look at the screen shot of the eTour interface below, and mouse-over different pictures and symbols to familiarize yourself with what each piece does. The "Casual Tour " version for dial-up users will have some, but not all, of the same icons. The appearance of the dial-up version will look different, and thumbnail images on these pages can be clicked to see larger, expanded versions.
As stated earlier, you will need the latest version of the Flash Player plug-in installed, so if you don't see a screen capture below, this might be a good time to install the plug-in.
This screenshot is a representation of the interface and the pieces in it, not the actual eTour.
