The region is official called the Rocky Mountain States and comprises of the states of Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.Compared to the rest of the USA, the population is very low in the Rockies, but has a broad ethnic mix of native americans and african americans particularly in Denver.
