I think Anchorage has been on Google Street View for awhile but the valley just recently showed up. Apparently the cameras were rolling around the valley last summer. Most of the main streets are on and some whole subdivisions show up.
The problem with street view is that you can’t choose when they will take a photo…for example, here is downtown Palmer last summer when all the streets were torn up.

It does give someone from out of town an idea what our area looks like. Here is a view of Springer Loop by Palmer showing the mountains across the fields.
Here is another one on Settlers Bay Drive…at least it was a sunny day.
I have thought about going around to take photos of all the major public buildings and schools for my website…but it looks like Google has done it for us.
Hopefully your lawn was mowed when they came by!
