Summary

For a traveler on the black ribbons of highways that stretch across the Great Plains, the sight of the Rocky Mountains rising up in the west is a majestic one; the treeless peaks shimmer in winter with a white mantle of snow and, in summer, seem to erupt through the green belt of vegetation encircling the lower slopes.
