Google Street View hikes into Grand Canyon

A team from Google took their new 40-pound Trekker backpacking camera-GPS system into the Grand Canyon last week to create the first Google Street View of the Bright Angel Trail.  The event caught the imagination of news outlets around the world.    The actual visual tour should be online in a few months.    [Right, Tommy Liu carrying the Google Street View Trekker backpack.
