Last month, we told you about Google’s plan to reach non-driveable places with its new Street View Trike.  They asked for submissions through the end of October, and two DC locations have made the cut.  The National Mall and the Capital Crescent Trail are both finalists, and now the public gets to vote on the winners.  I think both of these places are great, and featuring them on Google Street View would open them up to people across the country.  Plus, I secretly hope that if the National Mall wins, they’ll take the trike up to the top of the Washington Monument and do a panoramic view from up there.  How cool would that be?

Anyway, you have until Monday, November 30 to vote here.
