Plateau Region Mountain Region Desert Region Mountain Region

The mountain region in Arizona winds across the state from corner to corner. Most of the mountains are 4,000 to 6,000 feet high. One of the highest peaks in the region is Mount Graham near Safford which is 10,713 feet tall. We get much of our water from dams that store water coming from the mountains. The dams provide water for boating, fishing, and for cities and farms. They also help stop flooding. Many years ago these mountains were the sites of gold, silver, and

copper mines. There are still some copper mines in this region. There are many cattle ranches in the mountain region. The animals in this region include sheep, mule deer, black bear, and bison. There are also Ponderosa pines and wildflowers in the area. The sides of the mountains are especially beautiful in the spring when these flowers are in bloom. This region gets rain and snow. The winters are cold and the summers are cool with afternoon showers in August. https://geoalliance.asu.edu/sites/default/files/LessonFiles/Wood/ WoodStateS.pdf Mountain Region
