Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in western Colorado, Gunnison (which is a country and a town) was important in the state's early mining and railroad booms .  Nowadays, like many of Colorado's old mining districts, it is more about adventure sports enthusiasts and travelers seeking the spectacular rock formations that abound.  Top contributor MikeyG flew his drone over this rocky wonder land and produced this amazing aerial video.

Wyoming Wind

John Stinnett

The western USA state of Wyoming has always been known for its abundant natural resources.  It was the country's largest oil producing state in the 1920's, and its Powder River Basin provides about 40% of America's coal.  Recently, Wyoming has become a top wind power producer, and giant windmills now punctuate its landscape.  Here, John Stinnett uses a drone to create a beautiful look at a wind farm in western Wyoming, the spinning turbines capturing another state resource.

Wind River Range

Mikeyg733

The Rocky Mountains in the western United States is actually a collection of ranges; most of the mountains thought of as the "Rockies" are actually part of various sub-ranges throughout the region.  One of these is the Wind River Range, which runs through a portion of western Wyoming, north of Colorado.  In this video, Mikeyg733 treats us to a stunning bird's eye view to these magnificent western mountains of one of America's largest but least populated states.

IDAHO - IDAHOME

60 Seconds

The state of Idaho in the western USA has a landscape which varies dramatically.  While the western part of this odd-shaped state is flat farmland and desert, the eastern part of the Gem State lies in the heart of the great Rocky Mountain range.  This drone video by contributor 60 Seconds is shot in a place that sits right at the border of the "Two Idaho's"; note the dramatic difference in appearance between the (flat) foreground and (mountainous) background.
