2014 Outdoor Trips

Thursday, January 1st, 2015

Looking back at all the outdoor trips we did last year, the stats look almost identical to the previous year’s. Couple more overnight trips (10), thanks to the great weather. All in all, we hiked and paddled about 470 mi with 110,000 ft elevation gain on 59 trips.

Just discovered AutoStitch. AutoStitch is an amazing piece of software that assembles a set of images into a single panorama image. This is of course not the first software of this kind. But AutoStitch may be the first that just works (no manual editing of the image overlaps is required) and produces good output even if the source images weren’t shot very carefully and differ in brightness and coloring. Perfect for lazy people like me who use a point-and-shoot camera and couldn’t be bothered to spend a lot of time patching up images.
