ATTRACTIONS AND RIDES IN THE WILD, WILD WEST!

Here in the West we have plenty of wide open spaces and lots and lots of fantastic scenery. Rugged mountains divided by rolling plains characterize the diverse environment that you will experience while you are here. To the east are the spectacular National Parks of Yellowstone and Grand Teton and all the great roads that come with them, not to mention the surrounding gorgeous mountains and, oh yeah, the wild west town of Jackson, Wyoming. To the west is rolling country and rugged terrain where you can see vast, broken lava fields, craters, and the first steps in this country’s nuclear development. To the south is beautiful Bear Lake (did I mention more mountains?) and portions of the original road adventure, the Oregon Trail. To the north are windy river valleys with towns like Salmon, Chalis, Stanley, and Sun Valley to explore. Once you’ve seen and ridden this area the memories will burn themselves into your soul like a rancher’s red-hot branding iron.
