Land

As we know that in Western Cordillera, there is very high mountains, the mountains are called Rocky mountains. Most of Western Cordillera’s beauty was made by the forces of erosion. Mountains themselves got ice gouged, scraped and smoothed and also this happens in the lower region. Canyons, waterfalls, and geysers share its youth with lakes, rivers, and water falls, things around it.
On the other side if you go to higher elevation the trees will become smaller. If the elevation is lower, than the growth of evergreens will become less, less and less because of precipitation. The top of the Western Cordillera (mountains) has been said it’s like a tundra. The conditions why it’s like a tundra is because all the icy, snowy and it’s always cold up there. Stays like this every time. When you go into the farther south there are no green plant's growing there because the rain fall is too low(less).
