The Appalachians, which extend from southwest Maine into central Alabama —with special names in some areas—are old mountains, largely eroded away, with rounded contours and forested, as a rule, to the top.
Few of their summits rise much above 1, m 3, ftalthough the highest, Mt. Mitchell in North Carolinareaches 2, m 6, ft. Between the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountainsmore than 1, km 1, mi to the west, lies the vast interior plain of the United States.

The great interior plain consists of two major subregions: Although they appear flat, the Great Plains rise gradually from about m 1, ft to more than 1, m 5, ft at their western extremity.
The Rockies and the ranges to the west are parts of the great system of young, rugged mountains, shaped like a gigantic spinal columnthat runs along western North, Central, and South America from Alaska to Tierra del FuegoChile. Between the Rockies and the Sierra Nevada-Cascade mountain barrier to the west lies the Great Basina group of vast arid plateaus containing most of the desert areas of the United States, in the south eroded by deep canyons.
The coastal plains along the Pacific are narrow, and in many places the mountains plunge directly into the sea. The most extensive lowland near the west coast is the Great Valley of Californialying between the Sierra Nevada and the Coast Ranges. There are 71 peaks in these western ranges of the continental United States that rise to an altitude of 4, m 14, ft or more, Mt.
Whitney in California at 4, m 14, ft being the highest. The greatest rivers of the Far West are the Colorado in the south, flowing into the Gulf of California, and the Columbia in the northwest, flowing to the Pacific.
