Gooogle Maps Diablo

This is the coolest. You can take a virtual ride up Diablo through Google Maps! Can't link directly but:

Go to Gooogle Maps HERE, then paste this address:
1284 N Gate Rd Walnut Creek, CA 94598

Then click on the little photo that says STREET VIEW. You can turn 360° and look up and down and head up the Mountain with simple mouse clicks.

Google has a fleet of cars with cameras that drive around and take photos of everything. When they drove through the Junction, of course there were a bunch of riders hanging out... I'd love to know who these people are!

You can probably look up your house too... my lawn was full of leaves when they came by my neighborhood!

Lots of interesting information on these cars - some have recorded crimes being comitted, sometimes people have flashed the cameras!
