If you’re like me, you’re probably getting a little antsy. Maybe you’ve missed a spring camping trip you had planned. Maybe you feel unsure about venturing out onto the trails again. But you’re probably missing those outdoor moments that make you feel alive—the mind-exploding sunsets, or calm-inducing wave sets on the beach. If you’re at home but craving nature, check out these nine nature webcams. It’s certainly not the same as feeling the breeze on your face and smelling freshly rained-on pine needles, but it might just be the reminder you need that nature is still out there, and we’ll be out in it again.

Mount Rainier National Park

High camp cams come on later in the summer, but for now you can spy the view from Paradise.
