Like going Up North? Have a camera? Here’s a job for you
Ever wondered how far out Google Street View goes? I have. And I may have just found the answer for both of us. The answer is: A surprisingly waaay out.
Google Street View now lets you see views of Quttinirpaaq National Park, on the northern tip of Canada's Ellesmere Island. According to CTVnews.ca, this is about as far north as actual land goes on earth. And this place is so remote, only about 25 people visit it every year. It's even too far for the Google staff. The just gave the "Google trekker" cameras to the Parks Canada staff and told them to take some pictures while they worked last summer.
So, next time somebody references "the ends of the earth", you can say, "wanna see a picture of that?"
