After reading this blog


I decided to go ahead and download the Google Earth program and i must say i have found it extremely helpful for someone who is out of state trying to understand the layout of the city.it is much better than looking at your basic map for sure.i have been taking movie tours of the drive from my future Denver apartment to random destinations in town.I also even partially sat through a movie tour of my drive from Tucson to Denver that ill be making at the end of this month when i move.i have to say the elevation listing at the bottom of the screen was extremely helpful because one of the things i was rather curious about is where the big climes and descents take place,and how much "open space" is between the different populated areas in the states i will be traveling through.

Since this program seems to have an added advantage for Denver residents already,i thought it would be ok to ask if any of you locals use the program alot for getting around or just plain poking around? Any Destinations you recommend looking at? I imagine once you live there it might become less useful for everyday use but if youre looking to move to the city and havnt downloaded the program yet i think it is definitely worth its megabytes

That is SOOOOO cool! I wish they would do that for other cities. Too bad they only showed downtown Denver--it would be cool for those who are relocating to be able to see the greater metro area. Though it showed downtown remarkably well and demonstrated that, yeah, Denver really is flat. lol.
