Matt sent this picture of Randy during a training session with the Google Trekker, which is a trail version of the technology used to create Google Street View. It has 15 cameras, each collecting an image every 2.5 seconds. Randy, Tal, Micah, Shane, and Matt were one of three crews who carried the unit along the length of the Black Mountain Crest Trail a couple of weeks ago. This was a project of The Conservation Fund of North Carolina, which is working to protect several chunks of land in the Blacks. The pictures will be used to help potential donors understand the importance of this remarkable landform.
