Google Maps in cooperation with American Rivers, O.A.R.S and the Friends of the Yampa, floated the Yampa Canyon thru Dinosaur National Monument in June of 2015 with the Google Street View Trekker camera. As part of our Yampa River Awareness Project, it was our pleasure to help host this event and bring this technology into the majestic depths of Yampa Canyon.
Google has only taken its Street View Trekker camera down one other river, the mighty Grand Canyon of the Colorado. We applaud Google’s efforts to help us document, educate and inspire others about the importance of one of the Rocky Mountains West’s wildest remaining rivers.
For those of you who have never floated this amazing river canyon, now is your virtual chance to visit one of the wildest rivers in the Colorado River Basin.
