Rocky Mountains

As montanhas Rochosas são uma importante cordilheira localizada na América do Norte ocidental. As Montanhas Rochosas seguem por mais de 4 800 quilômetros a partir da parte norte da Columbia Britânica, no oeste do Canadá, até o Novo México, no sudoeste dos Estados Unidos. O pico mais alto é o monte Elbert localizado no estado norte-americano do Colorado, com 4 401 metros acima do nível do mar. Embora parte da cordilheira do Pacífico da América do Norte, as montanhas Rochosas são distintas da cadeia costeira do Pacífico ou do Sistema de Montanhas do Pacífico, que está localizada junto à costa do Pacífico.As montanhas Rochosas foram formadas há cerca de 70 milhões de anos atrás no período Cretáceo, pela Orogenia Laramide. Desde então, a erosão pela água e os glaciares esculpiram a região dando origem a vales e picos íngremes. No final da última era glacial, os seres humanos começaram a habitar o lugar. São destaques deste período sir Alexander MacKenzie e a expedição de Lewis e Clark que dedicaram a busca de minerais e a obtenção de peles. Esta exploração econômica inicial das montanhas não propiciou o aumento da densidade populacional.
