FYI: I'm not seeing it in Google Maps but Google Earth has updated imagery to include the Gorge fire. Interesting looks.

Cool. Too bad it's mis-aligned by about 150 feet in some places. :roll:

Just noticed this yesterday, too! Thrilled to pan around and see what's what. I think I was most excited with the Benson Plateau view! Looks like that lovely stretch along Ruckel Creek (on top, anyway) is still there...

Very interesting, thanks for sharing that.

Google maps is now also updated with the latest CRGNSA aerial imagery.

Paul,

Thanks for the heads up! BTW, I checked out imagery of Paradise CA and that's updated too.
