This journey to the less known natural treasures and to the oldest villages in North America leads from the Rocky Mountains via the Great Plains to the Rio Grande, then to the Yosemite national park and finally to the Grand Canyon. In front of the mighty Rocky Mountains the high plateau of the Great Plains expands with grasslands as far as you can see, hosting some of the oldest hunting regions in North America. A highlight of the journey is the visit of two important rock settlements which already existed in the year 1000, at the age of the Indian Anasazi tradition, and which have hardly changed up to our days.
