So generally it's fairly cold in this region.

This region has many natural resources. With the Rockies so close, how could they not ? Many valuable metals like silver,gold, and copper has been found in these mighty peaks. Other resources such as granite,marble,slate,zinc,oil,lead,and coal have also been found. There are other resources like timber and many cash crops. The farming industry isn't huge, but it brings in a pretty good income, with crops such as wheat,corn,grain, and hay.

It was actually fairly hard to find famous people in this region. Ever heard of Sarah Palin? Well neither had we. It turns out she used to be the governor of Alaska. Now she's a major political speaker, she currently resides in Idaho. What about R5? Super popular band these days. Well the R5 siblings all currently reside in Colorado. How about Peyton Meyer?

Apparently he used to star in "Modern Family" he currently resides Montana.

Food

In this region (and every other) food is a very important part of it. States have many recipes and other fun stuff. But if I listed them all, we'd be here all year. In Montana a common dish is their famous Huckle Berry Pie. In Idaho their Finger Steaks are well known. (Imagine fried steak pieces and you'll get what I mean) In Wyoming their fried Chicken Steaks are suposed to be pretty good. Don't even get me started with Nevada's Las Vegas All-You-Can-Eat-Buffet.
