For those who do not live near a national park, and for those who just need a respite from their concrete jungle, Google Earth has launched virtual guided tours through 31 of America’s most picturesque parks.
Every spring, the National Park Service dedicates a week to celebrate America’s natural heritage.
Google Earth guides takes virtual visitors to the vistas of the Shenandoah Valley, hoodoos of Bryce Canyon and pink granite formations of Otter Cliffe at Acadia National Park in Maine.
This year, parks across the country are hosting special programs like conservation activities, wildlife encounters and junior ranger events for kids.
National Park Week runs in the United States until April 28. JB
