Region/State: Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains, a major mountain range stretching more than 3,000 miles from the northernmost part of Western Canada to New Mexico in the southwestern United States, offer a spectacular playground for a plethora of outdoor activities. In the warmer months, hikers and backpackers traverse the extensive trail systems that offer everything from gentle walks through wildflower-filled meadows to challenging climbs up rugged peaks. Mountain bikers find their thrill on scenic trails, while rock climbers test their skills on the craggy granite and limestone formations. The various rivers flowing through the Rockies are perfect for white-water rafting and kayaking, providing both exhilarating rapids and serene stretches ideal for fishing. When winter arrives, the snow transforms the landscape, making it a prime destination for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and ice climbing. The Rockies not only dazzle with their majestic peaks and sprawling vistas but also with a rich diversity of wildlife, making every outdoor activity an opportunity for nature watching and photography.
