Rocky Mountain Way

This tour around the Rocky Mountains is like a highlight reel of the western U.S. It has everything. Cow towns and cattle drives. Fly fishing in snow-fed waters against the backdrop of monolithic mountains. Ghost towns. High desert and lush mountain forest. Plateaus and canyons. And the region’s best roads that lead you through it all.

Colorado might think about changing its nickname to “The Outdoor State,” because that’s where you’ll find most of its residents. More than in many other states, folks in Colorado engage in many outside activities — hiking, bicycling, mountain climbing, and rafting — the list goes on and on. Spend enough time here and you’ll find yourself drawn into the outdoor lifestyle, too.
