Mountains in the United States

Mountains in the United States are as varied as they are vast. They include the Rocky Mountains, which run for 3,000 miles through the Western United States, from British Columbia in Canada to New Mexico in the United States, and the Appalachian Mountains, in the Eastern US, are more than 1,500 miles long, stretching from Alabama in the south to Newfoundland in Canada. While exploring the country, you may also find yourself in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, which are some of the oldest mountains in the world or in California’s Sierra Nevada range which is home to the highest peak in the contiguous United States, Mount Whitney, which stands at 14,505 feet above sea level.
