44. Birch Mountain
PEAK MARKERS CURRENTLY BROKEN - SORRY!
Unfortunately, Google Maps decided to discontinue support for v2 of their API, which has resulted in the peak markers disappearing from my topographic maps. I'm working on a solution now and hope to have this fixed within a few weeks.

The following interactive map is initially centered on the target summit (Birch Mountain), but may be scrolled around by simply grabbing hold of the map image with the mouse and dragging. The controls at the top may also be used to pan around, adjust magnification, and select different map types. Clicking a peak marker displays a window containing information about the summit.
