Description

The state of Texas is divided into four natural regions including the Gulf Coastal Plains, the Mountains, the High Plains, and the North Central Plains. Not surprisingly, each region contains its own landforms and other types of geography. For instance, the Gulf Coastal Plains contain the Piney Woods and Blackland Prairie. Alternatively, the North Central Plains have rolling plains and prairies as well as lakes.
