Northern Nevada is the quintessential American West. Wild, open spaces that are sparsely populated with towns and ranches few and far between. This is the country where the cows, antelope, and deer far outnumber the human population.
The Red Desert, in south/central Wyoming, is touted as being one of the largest unfenced areas in the lower 48. Visiting the Red Desert is like stepping back in time. Huge views unspoiled by building and structures, wild horses, and very few other visitors.
The Wasatch Front offers excellent hiking, climbing, mountain biking, and skiing all within a short drive of Utah's major population centers. There are many world peaks to hike, climbs to climb, and routes to ski.
