Diamond Head Hike from hawaii on Vimeo.
Yesterday, I joined my 10-year-old daughter, Katie, on a hike up Diamond Head, one of Hawaii's most recognizable landmarks and a popular local attraction. The hike was organized by her Girl Scout troop (Hawaii Troop #84), and we were joined by seven other girls, another dad, and Troop Leader Debbie.
Music is "Climbing Mountains" by Barb Carbon (courtesy the Podsafe Music Network).
The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (1280x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.
You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
