Big Bend Conservancy
Google Earth has officially abandoned the panoramio layer and with it all the photos that the users did not migrate over to their new photo service. There are not that many google map photos, and the ones they do have for Big Bend are mainly at the major tourist areas. They still show the locations of the old photos, and there are a lot in very remote areas. These were quite valuable to me, for scouting potential hikes and discovering new places to explore, in Big Bend and elsewhere.From what I can find, it appears that the move to the new photo layer is complete and any photos not moved by the user are gone forever. There is a site https://mapsights.com/ that appears to have most of the old photos, but the interface isn't much good. Maybe the new system will make it much easier to add photos moving forwards, but for now it seems they really killed a good chunk of its functionality.
