Google Earth

If you haven't begun yet, then get started!

Google Earth uses satelite images to help you explore the earth. If the elevations are great enough, you can even "fly" around in between the mountains and down in the valleys of the earth. Try Yosemite National Park, Grand Canyon, Andes Mountains, etc.
