What's With the Blinking?
In some cases, the tree markers have a number of large photos associated with them.If the photo is blinking, it simply means the computer is still loading photos. Patience, my friend, patience...
Scrolling can be tricky with a big map like this one. If you click on the Google Map, you can scroll back and forth within the map. When you open a photo, it will sometimes be very large. Scroll within the photo(s) using the bars and close the photo using the X in the top right corner. You can also scroll on this website itself using the scroll bar to the right.
