Sierra Sightlines

An interesting question popped into my in-box yesterday: is it possible to see the Grand Canyon from the top of Mount Whitney? In fact I ask myself questions like this all the time, especially when I'm looking at shots of the interior Sierra and trying to identify distant peaks or other features on the horizon. Happily, I've found a free tool that is absolutely brilliant for coming up with the answers to exactly these kinds of questions. Can you guess what that tool is? Hint: it's not evil...
