Map Generation

 We started playing D&D for the first time in a long time and I've been inspired to break out my DM's Manual and try my hands at this RPGing. One of the biggest problems I've had with running games is the dreaded map. I can visualize a map of epic scale and detail with all sorts of information and notations for my players. Then I pick up a pencil to make that map a reality...and it looks like a 3 year old scribbled on some notebook paper. Any tips on creating maps or maybe some software to help in that department?
