Why I Love Google Maps

 

I am a huge fan of Google Maps.  I’ve been an early subscriber to their Beta versions over the past few years.  I’m absolutely fascinated with the official release as well as the Google Earth program.  Recently, a co-worker shared with me a version of Google Maps for my Treo 650.
I’ve always been intrigued with Mother Earth and her geography, geology and the detailed satellite photography of her many beautiful natural features.  Even photographs of cities and our many wonders of technology amaze me.
Above, is a natural feature resembling an Anishinaabe man in a headdress.  This image, which can be found at 50° 0’38.20″N 110° 6’48.32″W, has been making the rounds in blogs and in the media.  It is from the badlands region of southeaster Alberta.  There is a lot of debate on whether it is real or is it a hoax.  There is debate on whether it is a natural feature or was created by indigenous people somehow.  Others point with amusement that the Indian in the headdress is listening to an IPOD with an earbud headphone.
What do you think?  Either way, please check out Google Maps.  You’ll Love it.
