Default Is there a way to display mountain names on Google

On google earth if I want to do a search for a mountain it will show me the mountain and tag the name of the mountain to it. Is there a way to set Google Earth so that it puts all the names on all the Mountains without me having to do a specific search?

Found this website with stocked lakes,family lakes and fish hatcheries. I couldn't find one for all lakes though, if anyone knows of one please post.

The provincial web mapping service has layers for outlining and naming lakes.

1. Open the above link
2. Expand folder 'Base Mapping (1:20,000)'
3. Put a checkmark in 'Annotation (1:20K)'
4. Zoom to an 'eye altitude' of < 7.5km
5. Wait 4 seconds. (This can be changed on the refresh properties tab. I disable auto refresh)

All will be revealed.

Get some sleep so you can get out hiking tomorrow, leaving the Google Earth dreaming for a rainy day?
