At a Glance

From the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, there is one overriding theme regarding the scenery of the American West — it’s not flat. Join geologist and researcher Daniel Horns on a topographical exploration of this complex region. Take a closer look at some of these distinct provinces — the Colorado Plateau, the Rockies, the Basin and Range, the Coast Ranges and the Cascade Mountains. Each has its own distinctive and spectacular landscape. View the scenery of each province in a whole new light and discover the geologic processes that helped shape these landscapes.
