Rock Solid Fun in the American West

 Waterfalls, Geysers, and First Parliament.

New Shoes and an Ancient Wall

› Way back around the year 120, Roman Emperor Hadrian decided he'd had enough of the wildmen who lived in what is now Scotland. So he built a giant wall too keep them out of the northern border of the Roman Empire. Parts of that wall still stand today.
