Google Maps unveiled panoramic imagery of the Grand Canyon today.

According to Google’s official Lat-Long blog, the Maps team captured the imagery collection of more than 9,500 panoramas by strapping on Trekkers, or “Android-operated 40-pound backpacks carrying the 15-lens camera system,” as they called it, and walked the rocky terrain on foot.

The collection includes famous views like Bright Angel Trail, Colorado River, and South Kaibab Trail. A few of them are available on the World Wonders website with more information, facts, and figures about the Grand Canyon.

Or, just browse through Street View’s updated gallery for more scenic photos.
