Have You Heard of Crowdgeographer?
This is a guest post by Trekalong intern Robyn Campbell
We recently stumbled upon a new way to spot amazing natural locations, all by clicking on a button. Crowdgeographer.com is a website that combines Google Maps with gorgeous nature photographs, mostly sourced from Reddit and Imgur. Users upload their photos to one of those sites, and they are then added to the Crowd Geographer map for others to see.
At first glance, it looks like there are only a handful of locations. But if you zoom in, dozens of locations erupt all over the map. With just one click of a button, you can visit stunning places in the US, Mexico, Canada, British Virgin Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Greece, Zimbabwe, Russia, China, Oman, Turkey, Nepal, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Australia, much of Europe, and many more amazing places.
You can even see the beautiful landscapes and waterscapes of lesser known places such as Illa, Mauritius (an island off the East coast of Madagascar), Turkmenistan (one of the Turkic states in Central Asia) and Seychelles (an island country southeast of Somalia).
Here are some of my personal favorites:
