Take a few moments to explore some of the more enthralling landscapes this country has to offer – all from the comfort of wherever you currently find yourself.

The Hidden Worlds of the National Parks is one of Google’s latest ventures and one that coincides with the National Park Service celebrating its 100th anniversary.

With the summer waning into fall, you might begin to think you have missed out on some sensational seasonal spelunking.

Thankfully, technology has arrived that will let you tour some amazing vistas from your desktop or mobile device.

The following video teases the online experience:

Anyone with a few moments of time can be virtually whisked off to places like Alaska’s Kenai Fjords, New Mexico’s Carlsbad Caverns or the Dry Tortugas in Florida.

For those interested, and who wouldn’t be at this point, you can access the various virtual trips either by the link above, through iOS or Android or through Google’s Expedition initiative.

The nifty part is that you will have a park ranger guide you through some truly stunning vantages presented on the screen.

It’s the perfect vehicle to explore national treasures if you don’t have the time or means to see it for real or if you just want to explore travel possibilities.

Accessing Utah’s Bryce Canyon, for example, introduces us to amazing scenery as well as park ranger Kevin Poe who takes us through various parts of the location.

Immediately you get some expertise from a man who has enjoyed 16 years at Bryce Canyon.

And that is just some of the wonder presented to anyone armed with a smart device and a little curiosity.
