Explore the Grand Canyon With Google Street View Photo: Ariel Zambelich/Wired The Google Maps team went to the Grand Canyon and snapped more than 9,500 images to create a Street View map of the national park. After four months of stitching all those high-resolution pics together, the company’s Street View maps of the Canyon are live and ready to be clicked through. The maps don’t document the entirety of the 277-mile-long Canyon, but they do offer a trip along two of its most popular trails, both of which are on the southern rim: the Bright Angel Trail to the Phantom Ranch campsite and the South Kaibab Trail. There also are some maps along southern rim lookouts and along the Colorado River.
