Google is really working hard to bring Street View to all corners of the globe and this is another step in that direction. When combined with previous efforts like the Grand Canyon and diving in the oceans it's becoming quite remarkable.

You can view the new imagery in this special gallery and you can read more about it and the effort that went into it on the Google Lat Long Blog.
