The Mountains of North Carolina


Author(s):
Abstract:
North Carolina's mountains are some of the oldest ranges in the world. The state's mountain ranges create a ladder running north and south. The Unaka Mountains and the Blue Ridge make up the ladder's two sides. Between the sides are smaller ranges that run east and west. North Carolina's mountains contain both igneous and sedimentary rock. They also are home to a wide variety of plant species that range from sub-artic to sub-tropic.
