Sierra Nevada Geography

One of the things that makes the Sierra Nevada so unique is its diverse and complex geography, ranging from pastoral rolling oak dotted foothills to rugged alpine peaks; from barren desert to forests of towering sequoias; from the warm, dry lowlands to winter passes clogged with up to 30 feet of snow.

This page contains links to lists, charts and maps of some of the many geographic features of the range, including elements of the physical landscape, climate and the human landscape. This list is not exhaustive in any way, and only reflects topics of interest to the author.
