The show opens up with a tour of the Rocky Mountains and especially Rocky Mountain National Park, with its many high mountains and spectacular views. Next is a visit to Pike's Peak by cog railroad. Just below Pike's Peak, on the edge of Colorado Springs, is the famous Garden of the Gods, unique rock formations in their own park. The show takes quick turns through Denver and the outdoor recreation possibilities at Winterpark and Cripple Creek. The narrative shows down for a fascinating look at the sheep dog championships in Meeker, before moving on to Durango for its Railroad festival. There is an extended tour, with Park Rangers, through Mesa Verde's ancient cliff dwellings, then it's on to fishing and rafting on the exciting rapids of the Gunnison River.
The voice-over narrative keeps the viewer oriented without drowning out the spectacular scenery, and the show includes comments by locals and visitors. The effect, hopefully, is motivate folks to consider visiting Colorado. To that potential audience, this DVD is highly recommended.
This survey of Wyoming is very brief and probably uneven in its coverage; on the other hand, if the viewer doesn't know much about Wyoming, this DVD might be a pleasant way to start. Published in 2003, its information is probably just a little dated.
