Enter a land of striking contrasts – the Old West and a shiny new frontier. Wide-screen skies of rushing clouds over ancient Sioux territory and star gazing in the desert of Death Valley. Then on to San Francisco past towering redwoods for clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf and the glitzy verve and palm-lined boulevards of LA. Sail Alaskan waters with breeching whales and hear the gunfighter and gold rush tales of Dawson City; experience Yellowstone eruptions and meet the husky dogs of Tok. A million years in the making, this is Grand Canyon country, deafening waterfalls and a blaze of Yosemite colour.
