Things to see in Western USA
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Those in search of an adventure should begin in the State of Washington and head towards the Canadian border to discover volcanoes, forests and waterfalls. A little further away, make a quick detour to visit Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Prismatic Spring, famous for its amazing colours. After that, head for the authentic cities of Wyoming, where you can enjoy buffalo meat while taking in the typical Far West atmosphere. Finally, towards Arizona and Utah, the landscapes turn a red colour before you finally reach the Grand Canyon. This incredible route ends in New Mexico, where you can savour the Hispanic flavours of the cuisine and admire the authentic troglodyte houses built by the locals to escape the heat in the summer.
