Google Presents: Hidden Worlds of the National Parks

To celebrate the National Park Service Centennial we used Google technology to capture and offer access to our national treasures in a way that's not often possible, even in person. 

Follow rangers on an immersive adventure through five National Parks. Rappel into a crevasse, fly with thousands of bats, soar over an active volcano, dive through shipwrecks, and experience the Milky Way in 360° video and ambisonic audio.

 Getting to photograph and share the experience with the oldest living park ranger Betty Reid Soskin was one of the greatest highlights of the project. Watching her excitement build for what we had created and the vision for what a useful tool it would be in preserving the thing she dedicated her life to.
