The Rocky Mountains are the spine of North America. Stretching from New Mexico to the northern reaches of Alberta and British Columbia, they are a massive uplift, a divider of waters, full of multiple ecosystems, a haven and home for Paleo-Indians, a barrier to Anglo migration, a vacation land, and today a place with both problems and promises. In this course, you'll receive a brief overview of this expansive region, its origins, human habitation, its present, and future. For those unfamiliar with the Rockies, it will be a taste. For those who love the Rockies, it will add knowledge and appreciation of this marvelous land.
