Google Goes Rafting Down the Colorado River So You Don’t Have To

Continuing what seems like a quest to photograph every stretch of space on Earth, Google took its Street View cameras and technology down the Colorado River, the first time an American river is available for a virtual vacation. Giving you one less reason to go outside, Googles river view spans 286 miles of the Colorado — that par that meanders through Arizonas Grand Canyon National Park — in their latest effort to deliver the worlds far-flung, and often dangerous, places to our screens.  Screenshot from a trip down the Colorado River using Google Street View. Google took an eight-day trip down the river in August 2013 and teamed up with American Rivers, an environmental non-profit, to uncover sights previously reserved for white water rafters and daring adventurers. As The Wall Street Journal’s Marketwatch reports, staff attached Street View cameras to a raft, capturing panoramic views that were later stitched together.
