To the end of the (Google) world

Sometimes Google's Street View vehicles just can't go any farther. The Atlantic's Alan Taylor took a pictorial look at the reasons why.

Google Street View has ways of getting places. There are its fleet of cars, its tricycles for places without roads, SCUBA divers for the ocean, and even user-generated content.

Nevertheless, there's always, inevitably, an end to the road. Naturally, sometimes this is because the land just plumb runs out.

See them in our gallery below.
