Never been to the Grand Canyon? No problem, virtual hiker — Google can be your guide with new interactive, 360-degree imagery of the famous American monument.
OK, it's not exactly the same thing, but even so, it's pretty cool to
hike click down sites like the Bright Angel Trail, the Colorado River, the Meteor Crater, and amazing scenic overlooks you've only seen in static pictures.
Also just think about how Google's nerds captured these images with adorable, goofy Trekker backpack cameras. Pretty awesome. And, hey, your desk chair is way more comfortable than riding a mule. [Google Blog]
