Grand Prismatic Spring, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA

Yellowstone & the Rockies

The Rocky Mountains have a governing presence in the USA, running from the Canadian south into Montana and on to New Mexico. This vast mountain chain is one of the most spectacular land forms in North America and never fails to impress with its snow-capped mountains and lush forests.

Yellowstone National Park was the first designated park in the USA and is arguably the most renowned, covering an area of 3,468 square miles and considered a geothermal spectacle. With the majority of the world’s geysers preserved here, it is a park that never sleeps. Wildlife can be found at every turn, whether that’s grizzly bears, wolves and herds of bison and elk. Put simply: this is a wonderland.

Not to be forgotten are the dude and guest ranches that are synonymous with the west. Nowhere in the world are ranches a more intrinsic part of the day to day life and where is better to enjoy a horseback adventure than the stunning mountains of the Rockies.

Off-the-Beaten-Track in the Rockies

It may seem obvious to speak of the exceptional National Parks in the Rockies as a highlight, but what can be forgotten is to explore the areas away from the main ‘hot spot’ areas. National Parks including Yellowstone, Teton and Glacier all offer such diversity with the main roads and trails offering just a preview of what is on offer. Specialist guides are at their best in the USA and should be taken advantage of; they can offer unparalleled insight and access to the parks. Another must do is to visit Yellowstone in September when the aspen leaves are golden, against the backdrop of the Teton Mountains and its geothermal features.
