Map Details

The American West - Elevation Tints

The mountainous character of the American West is beautifully shown on this map. The “valleys” are mostly very large structural features, from the Puget-Willamette Trough in the North to the Rift Valley of the Gulf of California to the South. Intermountain plateaus and basins throughout the West are defined by their bordering ridges. The northern part of the High Plains was shaped by ice sheets, but the plains represent the accumulating sediments shed by innumerable successive ranges. 

Coverage includes all of the eleven western states (Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, and Colorado), and extends east well into the high plains, up into Canada as far as Edmonton, and down into Mexico past Chihuahua. About half of Texas is shown, including all of the Panhandle and the border as far down as Eagle Pass / Piedras Negras.
