On their quest to map the earth Google Maps has gone off road with the release of these panoramic images of the Grand Canyon which allow people to virtually explore this natural wonder by viewing the site with full 360° views.
Google’s ever expanding image collection aims to give people wider access to the world around them. With more than 9,500 panoramas of the Grand Canyon available to view on Google Maps covering more than 75 miles of trails and surrounding roads.

It’s pretty impressive to see these sites form the comfort of your desk, explore these images yourself at maps.google.com/grandcanyon. Where else would you like Google Maps to let you explore?
