Nebraska Geography

The Rocky Mountains, extending south from Canada, through Nebraska, and on into Texas.

The rolling plains (hills) of eastern Nebraska (farm country) are crisscrossed by numerous small rivers and streams. In the central plains, the land is more rugged and quite hilly.

In western Nebraska much of the land is blanketed by the Sand Hills, a large area of rolling sand dunes (formed by wind) and mostly covered by vegetation. In the far northwestern corner of the state stands a small area of unusual formations of sandstone and clay Great Plains.
