The Rocky Mountains are often perceived as the backbone of North America. They start in Alaska, pass through Canada and go almost all the way down to Mexico! A stone serpent that runs for thousands of kilometers (almost 4.800km) passing through landscapes that are as magnificent as they are diverse. The Big Sky and the Glacier National Park in Montana, the Yellowstone geysers, the gorgeous Colorado mountains all the way to New Mexico deserts…simply astonishing! The vibe is very relaxed and liberal (consider the fact that the selling marijuana is legal in Colorado) and the motto Live and let live is paired perfectly with these lands that extend for thousands of kilometers.
Which states does it include?
When to go?
In this region, you will forget the meaning of the word “traffic” (up until the 1990s, the State of Montana had no actual laws regarding speed limits) and the nature will open itself in front of your eyes, allowing you to enter a world of wonders. Although the towns you will see along the way may not be as famous as some major cities of the United States, you will encounter a very particular atmosphere and, as you sip an excellent craft beer, you will be able to sense the strong personality of these places. After the serenity and harmony of the adobe houses in Santa Fe mesmerize you, you will be offered an opportunity to go down the Colorado River in a raft! This trip will teach you a lot about the history of Native Americans and you will see what it must have felt to ride a horse along these immense lands or to be one of the first people to be struck by the “gold rush.”
