Yeah, two years ago I tried using Google Earth to plan a trip in the Alps, but the mountains weren't much more than a bumpy sattelite picture (with the exception of some big peaks). Nowadays the detail is pretty amazing.

of course the first thing I did was go to Everest and zoom around the icefield. It is much better now than it used to be, although the detail isn't quite there yet. Then I went to Denali.... ha then Gannett.....meanwhile it is a gorgeous day outside.

Thankfully, my better half came in and yelled at me to stop wasting time! :-D

I use Google Earth 3D screen shots to show routes during my slide shows.

Great for refreshing your mind of an area you haven't been to in a while, and planning alongside guidebooks
