"Google Street View Reveals Grand Canyon"

"You’ve used Google’s Street View to navigate unfamiliar cities. Now, you can use it to explore a river.

Today, Google, in partnership with American Rivers, is launching the Colorado River Street View. The imagery features the iconic Grand Canyon — 286 miles of the river, from Lee’s Ferry to Pearce Ferry. It marks the first time Google has used the Street View technology on a river in the U.S.

The project brings renewed attention to the wonder and beauty of the Grand Canyon, as well as the challenges facing the Colorado River’s health. American Rivers named the Colorado America’s Most Endangered River in 2013 because of outdated water management, over-allocation, and sustained drought."
