Category:Geographic Features: Mountains and Mountain Ranges
If all mountains in West Virginia were flattened, some say the Mountain State would be as large as Texas. Without question, most of the Mountain State is mountainous, with the exception of a few broad river valleys, such as those encountered along the lower Kanawha River and South Branch of the Potomac. Unlike other states, West Virginia is locked entirely within a mountainous region, entirely within the Appalachian Mountains. Though many of its lesser mountains might be termed "hills," the fact is: there is more mountain land in West Virginia than in any other state per square mile. West Virginia's boundaries encompass four provinces of the Appalachian Mountain System, from west to east -- the Allegheny Plateau, the Allegheny Mountains, the Valley & Ridge Province, and the Blue Ridge.</br> </br>
