Google Earth

Having been on dial-up until just recently, I'm a little late to the game with things like Google Earth. I can think of few free downloads that are as stunning as this. It's really quite addictive, and quite the educational tool. I'm able to show my kids how we relate to other places geographically in a way that I never could have imagined. It's opening their eyes to the world around us.

Here are some views of my little corner of the world:


Coeur d'Alene, with the Spokane River wiggling away to the west.


A closer view of downtown Coeur d'Alene and the Tubb's Hill hiking area... See that little spit of land at the bottom? That's one of our favorite summer beach hangouts.


Silverwood Theme Park, where we ride rollercoasters until we're sick!


The historic little town of Wallace, Idaho, home of the Sierra Silver Mine and The Brothel Museum.

I was looking at the Grand Canyon the other day. I could make out rock formations. I suppose you have to pay the $400 a year for that quality everywhere.
