This photo is taken towards the easternmost end of the Arizona/New Mexico Plateau region, and shows nearly-level expanses covered with low grassland with sparse interspersed shrubs, contrasting with a heavily-dissected escarpment leading up to a higher plateau with a rugged, irregular top. These are only some of the many landforms found in this region.
