If prehistoric wonders are something you fancy, make your way down to Fossil Butte National Monument, where you’ll have the opportunity to view some of the Earth’s most ancient fossils. Craving adventure in a cooler atmosphere? Go boating, fishing and jet skiing at Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area in southwestern Wyoming.
From hiking to snowmobiling, Yellowstone National Park serves up a myriad of outdoor activities. Observe the thermal features, waterfalls, canyons and the region’s wildlife during a Historic Yellow Bus Photo Safari, horseback trail ride or Western stagecoach tour.
The sharp, ragged peaks of the Grand Teton National Park rise high into the sky, more than 2,100 meters above the Snake River that winds its way across the grassy valley below. Visitors to the park can take a float trip, hike the many kilometers of trails, go fly fishing with an experienced guide, or take a wildlife tour through the Serengeti of North America.
Go rock climbing at America’s first National Monument, Devils Tower, which was made famous in Steven Spielberg’s classic film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
