Centuries ago, gold rush fever lured thousands of men and women to try their luck in the West. Riches of a different kind draw them today. The untamed glory of the land- and seascapes here are matched only by the incredible wildlife found throughout the region. Modern architectural offerings in the state of Washington are second to none. The cherished traditions of America's native peoples can be witnessed firsthand in Wyoming and Montana. The gold rush may be over, but visitors to the western states will come way with experiences that they will treasure forever.
