Located in the west of the country, the Rocky Mountains are the rugged backbone of the United States. Traversing across several states, the Rockies offer the opportunity to relax and absorb the scenery in the sparsely populated Wyoming, or indulge in pulsating adrenaline-fueled pastimes such as skiing, white-water rafting and climbing in Colorado. With a variety of National Parks including Glacier, Teton and Yellowstone to explore, the Rocky Mountains is a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, whilst animal fan can try to spot grizzly bears, bison, mountain lions, moose and wolves, collectively known as ‘The Big Five’. Visitors to the Rockies can also enjoy natural hot springs, as well as a locally produced food and drink which can be enjoyed on the clear starry nights that the area is famed for.
