Greg,Here's a quote from Google Earth as to the reason for this:
I love Google Earth for looking a various well known places around the world, but I find it useless in the Superstitions. There are a lot of places (like the Superstitions ) where they have the graphics limited to low resolution photos. As long as you stay out of those areas it's fine tho.
Not all cities are covered in high resolution (where you can see individual buildings and cars) detail. We have more imagery of the United States than other countries currently. And because the imagery comes from a variety of sources, and is mosaic-ed together, it is difficult for us to specify the date of a city or region (a single city may have imagery taken from different months). We are adding high resolution coverage continually, but we are not able to tell you when a specific area will be covered. The best way to find out if your area of interest is covered is to download the free version of Google Earth and check it out for yourself (Google Earth, Google Earth Plus, and Google Earth Pro share access to the same database).
