USA’s Grand Canyon and Colorado River now on Google Street View

Google recently announced it has added a 286-mile stretch of the Colorado River to Google Street View, providing digital access to parts of the Grand Canyon that would otherwise be accessible only by watercraft. This is the first time such technology has been applied to a significant white water river and it now gives us a virtual window into the spectacular Grand Canyon and rapids of the mighty Colorado River.

The following short vid is a sampler of what is available:

                   

Given the total failure of our local SE Queensland wet season this year, I for one intend joining the ranks of the armchair boater to examine this new plaything in more detail. 

Hmmm … I wonder if the World Adventures board was meant to also cover virtual adventures?
  

Cheers for now
