Description: The Physical map of Arizona showing major geographical features such as rivers, lakes, topography and land formations.
Arizona is the 6th largest state in the United States of
America as it covers an area of 295,254 square
kilometers. It is a landlocked state located in the
southwest of the country. The State has very little land
occupied by water bodies as only .32% is water.
Physiologically the state can be split into 3 parts: The Colorado Plateau, the Basin and Range Province and the Transition Zone.
The plateau takes up about 360,000 square kilometers and is the center between the 4 corner points. It is a semi-arid zone which is mostly plain at an average elevation of 6,500 feet. The southern edge of the plateau is known as the Mogollon Rim. The Colorado River Canyon and Grand Canyon are found in this Red Rock Country.
The southern third of the state is taken up by the basin and range province. The area is characterized by narrow lengthy deserts lined with steep mountain ranges like Virgin Mt., Poverty, Mt, Chuska Mt., Black Mountains and Hualapai mountains in the north. Mount Kofa, Harcuvar, Gila Bend, Mohawk, Peloncillo, Galiuro and Sauceda Mountains are found in the south. The area in between these two zones is called the Transition Zone. This area has 3 major mountain ranges known as the White, Sierra Ancha and Santa Maria Ranges.
The major rivers running across the state are the Gila and the Colorado. The Colorado River also created the Grand Canyon millions of years ago.
