The contours are handled differently than the way Backcountry Maps does it, a site I looked at several weeks ago. On that site, USGS topo maps replace the Google map background.
Although Earth Tools has a clean look and uses clever technology, the topo maps at Backcountry Maps provide more detail, making them a more useful means of seeing geologic features.

"It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves."
Henry David Thoreau
"The tops of mountains are among the unfinished parts of the globe, whither it is a slight insult to the gods to climb and pry into their secrets, and try their effect on our humanity. Only daring and insolent men, perchance, go there."
