here is a link to an index of webcams showing views of glacier park, yellowstone park, and representative locations around the state. (it's a big state, 300 miles by 500 miles, fourth largest in the u.s.) very roughly, the western third of the state is mountains (the mighty rockies), and the eastern two-thirds is prairie. or was, before farming, logging, mining and other "development" was inflicted on the land. one of my favorite fantasies is the wish to roam the american west as it was 500 years ago, before the arrival of european explorers and settlers. well, we all need our dreams.
