Stunning pictures of the American west

Even though they're actually only 140 years old, you really should have a look at these gorgeous pictures: In Focus - The American West, 150 Years Ago - The Atlantic.

I particularly like the picture of Virginia City, Nevada, from back in the days when some guy named Mark Twain was living there, writing Roughing It. In many respects, Virginia City still looks similar; if you've never been, it's definitely worth a visit (though don't go now; go March/April or October/November, otherwise the weather is too severe).
