A screen capture from one of the new Google Maps-curated views. Interactive graphics below.
You may have thought Google Maps had already captured interactive graphics depicting every square inch of Colorado and the rest of these United States.
But there are a lot of new things to see in a just-released special collection of what Google Maps calls "iconic and inspiring areas" in our fair state.
The folks at Google Maps note that the images were captured using "Google's Street View Trekker, a wearable backpack with a camera system on top, and Google's newest Street View camera platform" — but that doesn't mean streets are always the focus.
Indeed, the thirteen Google Maps-curated items in a collection of forty total areas concentrate heavily on trails surrounding Boulder, supplemented by fresh angles on the Colorado State Capitol and the Garden of the Gods.
Explore all thirteen below.
