Whoo Hoo!!! It’s on the Big Island!

I just read on Facebook by Big Island on the Cheap columnist Leslie Lang that the Google Street View car is on the Big Island.

Just saw Google car with enormous camera mounted on top drive up Kanoelehua Ave in Hilo. Google Maps, here we come.

Google Street View premiered in Hawaii last year, and even got a shot of Oahu blogger Ian Lind’s driveway.

I wonder if the car will make it’s way out to Pahoa!  I would imagine if it could drive all the way down to the lava viewing area it could get some incredible shots for it’s viewers!
