Welcome to The Rocky Mountains
True, today’s Rockies are dotted with civilization. And, yes, modern adventurers plan casual expeditions over microbrews and organic burgers. But these lands are far from tamed. Vast mountain ranges remain unscarred by roads or summer homes, largely thanks to the USA’s brilliant public lands system.
You’re likely familiar with the big ones: Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks, but over half of the total area of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho is national forests, monuments and recreation areas, all open for everyone to enjoy. Welcome to America’s playground, where there's still plenty of wild places to be wild in.
