Arizona Hiking is now part of Google's Field Trip app!


ARIZONA HIKING PARTNERS WITH GOOGLE FIELD TRIP APP

Arizona Hiking.blogspot has been selected to partner with Google Field Trip---an augmented reality app for smartphones and Google Glass.  Driven by GPS technology (and a bunch of tech wizards) the Field Trip app runs in the background of your devise and notifies you when you're approaching something of interest. A "card" will display with details about the site and if you have Bluetooth, the content can be "read" to you.    With Field Trip, you can customize your feeds to learn about everything from where to eat, local history, shopping, cultural venues, and now where to hike in Arizona!  For instance, if you're sitting in a coffee shop wondering if there's a hiking trail nearby,  the Field Trip app will notify you automatically and my copy, photos, directions and map will appear before you---like magic. 
Arizona Hiking joins contributors like Food Network, Sunset, Atlas Obscura, Songkick and other  hyperlocal-to-national experts to enrich your travel experiences.  I am very excited to be a part of this product and hope you'll love it too.  And, please---let me know if   there's a trail you would like to see added.Many Arizona Hiking destinations are already in the app, and I continue to prep content
for additional trails on a regular basis. And, of course, this blog isn't going away---I'll keep posting hikes here as usual.
