The Peninsular Ranges (also called the Lower California province) are a group of mountain ranges, in the Pacific Coast Ranges, which stretch 1,500 km (930 mi) from southern California in the United States to the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula; they are part of the North American Coast Ranges that run along the Pacific coast from Alaska to Mexico. Elevations range from 500 ft to 11,500 ft (150 m to 3,500 m).
Famous quotes containing the word peninsular:
“The good husband finds method as efficient in the packing of fire-wood in a shed, or in the harvesting of fruits in the cellar, as in Peninsular campaigns or the files of the Department of State.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
