The Grand Canyon is Now on Street View
The Bright Angel Trail, Grand Canyon
Google has added a lot more Street View imagery to Google Maps, including some amazingly beautiful panoramas taken in the Grand Canyon. Street View is also now available in Lithuania.
To capture the Grand Canyon imagery Google devised the Trekker, a backpack-sized Street View camera system. The trekker even makes an appearance in the new Grand Canyon imagery.
If beautiful landscapes are your thing then you should also check out the new Street View imagery on the ski slopes in Aspen.
Travelling a lot further east you can now also explore the historic Lithuanian town of Vilnius, including the pretty Vilnius Cathedral.
