Out Where the west begins. Out where the handclasp's a little stronger, Out where the simle dwells a little longer, That's where the West begins. Out where the sun is a little brighter, Where the snows that fall are a trifle whiter; Where the bonds of home are a wee bit tighter: That's where the West begins. Out where the skies are a trifle bluer, Out where friendship's a little truer, That's where the West truer, That's where the West begins. Out where a fresher breeze is blowing, Where there's laughter in every streamlet flowing Where there's more of reaping and less of sowing That's where the West begins. Out where the world is in the making, Where fewer hearts with despair are aching; That's where the West begins. Where there's more of singing and less of sighing, Where there's more of giving and less of buying, And a man makes friends without half trying, That's where the West begins. The Rockies are "Where the West Begins" and it was in their shadow that this famous poem was written. It has seemed to put into words the spirit of the West and Mountains better than anything yet written.
