New Google Earth Imagery for Carbon/Emery Counties

I fired up Google Earth just now and noticed some new satellite imagery for about half of Carbon County, and in Emery County it covers the Highway 10 corridor and the surrounding populated areas. The imagery appears to be from fall 2006, judging by a couple of missing buildings and the yellow colors in the trees. It’s very high resolution compared to what we used to have. I can clearly see my car parked in the driveway and the 4×8′ utility trailer in the back yard. I can even discern individual people walking in the parking lot at the grocery store. It doesn’t look like the new imagery has made it into Google Maps yet. This will be a fun new toy for a while. It’s just too bad that none of the San Rafael Swell is covered by the new stuff.
