Land Cover of the Southern Rockies Map
The Southern Rockies south of Wyoming’s Great Divide Basin are markedly
scattered and distinct ranges, typically separated by wide grassland and
shrub plateaus. Farmlands occupy isolated pockets of suitable land
where irrigation water is available. Settlement is concentrated at the
region’s very edges, along the Wasatch and Rocky Mountain Fronts and
below the Mogollon Rim in Arizona, vast areas are unpopulated.
The Wasatch and numerous Western Colorado Ranges support
mixed evergreen & deciduous forests, rather than the evergreen
forests seen in most of the West.
The map includes all of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico; most of
Wyoming; a lot of Nevada; and smaller portions of neighboring states
