wiebesick I met with Governor Rick Snyder to show him Google Trekker. Michigan became among the first states in the nation (after Hawaii and Florida) to partner with Google Maps to capture 360-degree, fully navigable Streetview imagery of dozens of iconic Michigan locations to be accessible for the first time ever to more than one billion people around the world who use Google Maps. 9mon

wiebesick It's not the majestic Great Lakes, but Lake Tahoe is beautiful. It's the 6th largest lake in the country, after the five Great Lakes, of course. 1y
  •   dljahn @wiebesick I was just there last summer and was telling everyone what a fantastic lake they have. And that's coming from someone who has been spoiled by the Great Lakes my whole life! Except they thought it was too cold for swimming...umm they need to take a dip in Lake Superior if they think Tahoe is cold 1y
  •   wiebesick @dljahn It is a nice lake. I like the mountains that surround it. 1y
  •   oni_one_ Gorgeous. On my list to get to!! 1y
  •   wiebesick @oni_one_ You'd love it, Sarah! My favorite part of Lake Tahoe is an area called Emerald City. 1y

wiebesick Among the first of its kind in the nation, Pure Michigan has partnered with Google Maps to make many of Michigan's iconic locations accessible for the first time ever to more than one billion people around the world who use Google Maps. I'm wearing a Google Trekker backpack, which made it all possible. See michigan.org/GoogleTrekker for the 360 degree, fully navigable imagery. 1y
