More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.

Mountains of the Imagination
The peaks of Grand Teton National Park aren't the highest in the world, but they sit atop what might be nature's archetypes for mountains. Unlike most mountain ranges, the Tetons lack foothills, so the jagged peaks shoot straight out of the high plateau of western Wyoming, delivering tremendous vertical reliefs and unobstructed views of perfectly pointy peaks. Beyond offering frame-filling shots for landscape photographers, the park thrills outdoor enthusiasts with 320 km (200 mi) of trails for hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing. It also boasts numerous rock-climbing routes and waterways teeming with trout. Birders peer through binoculars at bald eagles and osprey here, while wildlife-watchers look for elk, moose, bison, grizzly bears, and mountain lions. While most visitors come in summer, the heavy snow of winter provides a different and equally captivating perspective.
