Google Made Exploring Our National Parks Possible for Everyone

As I’m sure you all know, this past month marked the Centennial of the National Park Service. To celebrate, the National Park Service teamed up with Google Arts and Culture in order to create incredible 360-degree virtual tours of some of the most beautiful and least traveled locales in the entire National Parks network—which is great news for those of us who have jobs, Goddamn it.

Visitors to the digital exhibit—which is free—may explore Bryce Canyon (Utah), Carlsbad Caverns (New Mexico), the Hawaii Volcanoes (Hawaii), the Kenai Fjords (Alaska) and Dry Tortuga (Florida). Incredible interactive 360-degree panoramas, beautifully-produced supplementary video footage and an actual Park Ranger tour guide make these exhibits some of the more impressive digital displays I’ve ever seen, and really demonstrate the capabilities of well-produced, 360-degree content.
