glades

Glades are marvellous places, and Victoria and Valley View Glades are good places to see them. Even though they occur in a variety of places in Missouri, they always feel unique, a departure from the usually timbered Ozark landscape. They invite a kind of slow progress, a constant stopping and turning to look, since glades often reveal a vista that is not possible in thick woods.

How natural are Ozark glades? They're common around Valley View and Victoria Glades, so at first glance they seem like a normal part of the landscape.
