Colorado goes hi-res

We just got a note saying the whole state of Colorado is now high resolution on Google Earth.
For a long time, any spot far from the urban corridors has been a pixilated blur. Now, no matter where you fly on the map, you get good, clear images. The detail is high enough that I can even show you the trail I took up South Maroon Peak this weekend. See above.
Actually, it was so socked in when I was there, that I couldn't see a thing, so it's nice to see it on the map. Google Earth is the coolest.

Awesome. I can get lost for hours in Google Earth. I'd love to see the same for every mountain range on planet earth. I'm sure they'll get there in time.

looks like there was some updates done in colorado springs as well. the parking lot in Red Rocks Canyon now shows half completed, in google maps there is still nothing there. also terrain resolution is better, for example garden of gods looks more plastic
