This was my 50th state visited and can tell you the people here are different than anywhere else in the U.S. They give the term "Rugged Individualist" new meaning and I admire their tough existence in this unique environment
Americans save up their whole life to take that one big vacation out of the country. It always baffles me when I meet someone that has never taken the time to simply hop in the car and drive out west (or east if you're coming from the west coast of course) The experience of the old west, Yellowstone and the simple vastness of how large the United States is, never ceases to amaze. If you're looking for a vacation this year, or next year, consider the American Road Trip out west. You won't be disappointed.
