It is too difficult to summarise with few words what the Western USA has to offer to the travelers… The greatest concentration of National Parks is in the Colorado Plateau, the “Red Rock Country”, a desert area where the erosion has created natural rock wonders and lunar landscapes unique on earth.

The northern regions, once lands of Cheyenne, Crows and Sioux, can boast magnificent mountain scenery and parks such as the Badlands in South Dakota, the Glacier National Park in Montana and the incredible Yellowstone National Park, the first established national park in the U.S.A. and perhaps the most beautiful in the world, located on the border between Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

The West Coast features vibrant cities such as San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles and Seattle, house of the 90’s grunge music, other stunning natural parks like the Yosemite and Sequoia in California or the Crater Lake in Oregon … what else?
