In fact, if you want to hike and photograph a trail or other 'sight' so that it can be included in Google Street View, Google will lend you a camera pack. You need to be a very serious hiker, though. Last time I checked, a couple of years ago, the pack weighed something like 40 pounds (18 kg, for those who don't think in pounds).
