The Rocky MountainsThe Rocky Mountains, tall majestic structures, peeking over the Great Plains,
The Rocky Mountains, a chain so long that from the air it looks like a snake.
The Rocky Mountains, a range stretching from Canada to New Mexico,
The Rocky Mountains with its views so vivid, remind us of a painting.
The Rocky Mountains, a habitat for deer, elk, and moose, a predatorís paradise,
The Rocky Mountains, home to wolves, fox, and coyotes, teeming with life.
The Rocky Mountains, with its lush valleys, a site where bison roam the grasses,
The Rocky Mountainsí forests, a shelter to squirrels, chipmunks, and groundhogs.
The Rocky Mountainsí flowing rivers and still lakes create a dreamerís vision
The Rocky Mountains, its snow-capped peeks glistening and shining like diamonds.
The Rocky Mountains, laden with long trails and paths, a hikerís passion,
The Rocky Mountains, with its steep slopes, a skiing heaven.
The Rocky Mountainsí rivers, a cool dwelling for beavers, otters, and fish,
The Rocky Mountainsí rocks, home to snakes, marmots, and prairie dogs.
The Rocky Mountainsí thick green forests shield black and grizzly bears,
The Rocky Mountainsícaves and crevices, the perfect hideout for mountain lions.
