If you have not had this experience yet, you must do it now…Fly to the Grand Canyon and take a tour…Oh, my! It’s a free download from Google and it’s very cool. For instance, I typed it “from New Orleans” to my home address, and not only did it map the entire journey, but it zoomed in on my lot! Caveat: the “earth” pictures are at least a couple of years old, because my house was a LOT and not a house, which it’s been for three years .
Anyway, very cool . . . especially for writers who might have to write about journeys, terrain, etc. Enjoy!
P.S. Thanks to Randy Elrod at his Ethos blog for this tip.
