Overview

This page used to be a photo but I switched it over to avoid the what's new page. It just has random stuff.

Webcams

Various useful webcams in the area include:

Idaho

  • Lookout Cam, Sun Valley Ski Resort, located at just under 10,000 feet. Facing toward the Pioneers, with the Boulders on the left.
  • Borah Peak, which is at gibbrown.com. Just a simple small image from their cabin, but gives a good general idea of conditions.
  • Mount Jefferson of the Centennial Mountains, from Island Park.

Idaho NAIP 2004 1m color aerial
Utah NAIP 1m color aerial
Wyoming... in process summer 2006
Other states are available in recent NAIP imagery, but many are for a fee.
Ask.com maps uses NAIP imagery for its high resolution aerial imagery.

Auxiliary Information


Idaho Department of Lands Viewer - allows layering of land management information with topographic maps. While one cannot find private land ownership infomation directly, I've found that water rights use can be helpful in tracking down landowners.

Montana Cadatral Mapping Program - perhaps the best state website in tracking down landowners.

PR Overview

Puerto Rico is a rugged island on the north side of the Caribbean. It is furthest east of the Greater Antilles, an island group that includes Cuba, Jamaica, and Hispaniola. It is just west of the Virgin Islands.

The island is roughly 100 miles long and 35 miles wide, about the size of the Wind River Range in Wyoming. Although the island is small, it has a population of 4 million and a population density higher than all U.S. states but New Jersey and Rhode Island. Despite that, it still has a dramatic landscape on the interior of the island.

Puerto Rico is a good introduction to travel in Latin America because of less culture shock, fewer unpleasant travel experiences, and a lack of red tape. for citizens of the U.S. Since Puerto Rico is a United States territory there is no need for a passport or to pass through customs for American citizens to travel there.
