Google Street View: American National Parks

The Street View cars don’t often venture into American national parks. The coverage of the United States is fairly poor in general, and concentrates largely on urban areas.

But I poked and I prodded, and I managed to find a few little journeys through the parks of the USA. Here’s what I found. Come and join me.

The Joshua Tree National Park, southern California:

The Giant Sequoia National Park, California:

Googlecar unblurred, on the Manzanita Trail in Kings Canyon National Park:

More redwoods, in the Crystal Springs Trail area:

Angeles National Forest, California:

Death Valley National Park, southern California:

Yosemite National Park, northern California:

The cloud-misted Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming:

Wasatch-Cache National Forest, Utah:

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, complete with tenacious cyclist:

Everglades National Park, Florida:

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee:

Bonus stretch-school-bus-from-HELLLL in the Smoky Mountains National Park:

Foliage in the Adirondacks, New York:

Not a national park, but noteworthy because it seems to be the northernmost StreetView location there is. North of Fairbanks, Alaska:

And the southernmost US Street View location: Atlantic Boulevard, Key West.

  1. Wow – that’s a great assortment of views. Loved the misty Grand Tetons.

  2. ahhhhh home. my hometown is “the gateway to sequoia natl park” and our wedding site is the restaurant less than a mile from the entrance. it’s so, so, so beautiful and i’ll cherish it always. such a treasure, these places.

  3. amandaw: aw, that’s lovely. I have those same feelings about the tall forests in the Southwest, especially the Tingle forests, which are not unlike redwoods. Being in the presence of ancient tree-beings is humbling.
