I am really proud and happy with this group. The members have posted some phenomenal photos in this group. There is a lot of talent in this group. Thank you for sharing your wonderful and beautiful photos. Please invite your friends who love the American West and it's wonders as much as we do. Happy Trails!

Group Description

WELCOME TO THE AMERICAN WEST!" We welcome photos of the Western US, from Washington State to New Mexico, California to the Rockies. We're looking for imagery that evokes that somewhat intangible spirit of the American West: wide-open spaces, exploration, rugged nature and taming the land.

This could be considered to be a superset of Flickr's "American Southwest" and "Pacific Northwest" groups.


We ask that you make sure that photos posted to this group are visually symbolic of the American West. In other words, when you look at your photo before posting, it should be reasonable that it portrays something of that unique spirit of the West. Please don't post shots of things that could be anywhere or don't evoke that spirit.


Please follow our Simple Rules as they are shown below...

Americans are a naturally pioneering people living in a beautiful country...I'm not sure anything could be more quintessentially American than the West. Let's talk about that! Post your thoughts about the West on our message boards. Please keep conversation on-topic and refrain from inflaming your neighbors. :)
