West USA is typically defined by the mountain states incorporating the ranges of the Cascade Mountains and the famous Rocky Mountains.

Our one regret is we ran out of time to explore this region more in-depth on our USA road trip. We have plans to return.

Scroll below to find some of our highlights and favorite experiences so far in the mountain states, including stunning national parks and road trip ideas.


The West USA Mountain States includes the states of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming.

Some include Utah and Nevada, but we have included them in our Southwest USA region.


Travel has been the focus of our life since 1997 - intentionally.

We don't plan on stopping that. We now have a base in Raleigh, NC - after being granted a Green Card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging.

We will continue to explore more of the US but also intend on traveling further abroad - Europe, South East Asia and Central and South America.

We can't wait to share more of our favorites as we experience them.
