Google Expands Yosemite Street View

Follows release of El Capitan tour

Google Street View last week added several new areas to its virtual 360-degree panoramic tour of Yosemite National Park, following June’s launch of a vertical tour of El Capitan.

On October 15, Google released ground-level imagery of Yosemite’s Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Glacier Point Trail, Bridalveil Fall, and other landscapes of the park. Notably, the app is the only way that visitors can explore the Grove: It’s currently closed off for restoration. In June, Google kicked off the project with a climbing tour of El Capitan.

Yosemite isn’t the first national park to get the Street View treatment. Google previously released ground-level views of parks across the U.S. and abroad, including the Grand Canyon, the U.K.’s Northumberland National Park, and Kenya’s Samburu National Park.
