On January 31st, Google announced the release of "panoramic imagery of one of the world’s most spectacular national monuments: the Grand Canyon."

Google Maps is releasing panoramic imagery of one of the world's most spectacular national monuments: the Grand Canyon. These Street View images cover more than 75 miles of trails and surrounding roads, making our map of this area even more comprehensive, accurate and easy to use than ever before.Take a walk down the narrow trails and exposed paths of the Grand Canyon: hike down the famous Bright Angel Trail, gaze out at the mighty Colorado River, and explore scenic overlooks in full 360-degrees. You'll be happy you're virtually hiking once you get to the steep inclines of the South Kaibab Trail. And rather than drive a couple hours to see the nearby Meteor Crater, a click of your mouse or tap of your finger will transport you to the rim of this otherworldly site.
