Montana has an expansive land mass and a wild-west history to match. As the 4th largest state in our union the scenery transforms from its eastern plains into vast mountain ranges as one travels westward. Nicknamed “Big Sky Country” for its sweeping views, it is also nicknamed the “Treasure State” due to the state’s resources in it gold, silver, copper, oil and coal. Early settlers were attracted to its mining and agricultural opportunities. Conflicts and battles arose when native American Indians were encroached upon by white settlers. The Homestead Act of 1862 further solidified the white man’s presence offering free land to settlers if they indeed “up proved” 160 allotted acres. This was a challenging feat in the arid climate. Soon the railroad made its appearance.

New Mexico, colonized by Spain prior to becoming a part of the U.S. territory in 1912, has over 500 years of Hispanic culture as well as over 2,500 years of Native American history under its belt. Dwellings in Taos Pueblo, which are still occupied, have been traced back 900 years making it one of the oldest continuously inhabited areas of America. The physical features of New Mexico offer a wide variety of outdoor educational experiences and exploration through its national parks, monuments, fossil sites, ancient lava flows and unique geology.

Utah, a state defined by its vast alpine land, arid deserts and other breathtaking natural wonders, offers as much to the outdoor recreationalist as it does to the history buffs as seen in its preservation of hotels and inns scattered within its borders. With a rich history of Native American tribes, Indian wars and early pioneers there is plenty of history to be witnessed. Originally a Mexican territory in the early days, it continued to evolve as an influx of people arrived with completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad in 1869.
