Google Sightseeing

Google now provides satellite images for most of the world. Sites like Google Sightseeing have popped up to display some of these images. Take a look at the few I found and if you find any other intertesting sites, post them in the comments.

Mt. Kilimanjaro!Mt. Kilimanjaro - the tallest mountain in Africa. As the mountain rises out out of a savannah, the cooler temperatures create a forested landscape. The top of the mountain is covered with snow.
Wave to Al!Alcatraz - The former prison located in San Francisco Bay was the home of many notorious criminals including Al Capone.
GWB is just up a bitThe Washington Monument, Washington D.C. - Scroll around and you can see the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials as well as the Smithsonian.
alt=Empire State Building, NY - Towering over the center of Manhattan... look closely and maybe you can see King Kong.
