Nature of Nevada

The state of Nevada is part of the US Mountain States region and borders the states of Oregon and Idaho to the north; Utah in the east; Arizona in the southeast and California in the west and southwest.

The area of ​​the state of Nevada is 286,367 km 2 (7th place among the states of the USA).

Most of the state of Nevada is located in the Intermontane Plateau region, namely within the Great Basin, the largest drainless region in the United States. In the northern part of Nevada, many mountain ranges stretch, the highest mountain in Nevada, Bondary Peak, rises 4007 meters above sea level.

The southern part of the state, where, among other things, the largest city of Nevada, Las Vegas, is located, is located in the Mojave Desert.

Several rivers flow through the state, most of which are relatively small and do not have access to the oceans (such as the Humboldt River, which flows into the lake of the same name). Several rivers in the north of the state belong to the Pacific Ocean (tributaries of the Columbia River).

The Colorado River is the boundary between the states of Nevada and Arizona. The famous Hoover Dam and the dammed Lake Mead are also located here.

On the border between the states of Nevada and California is located the largest in the United States and extremely picturesque mountain lake – Tahoe.

Nevada is characterized by a dry (one of the driest in the US), desert climate, with large seasonal and daily temperature fluctuations.

Daytime temperatures in summer can reach 52°C, night temperatures in winter drop to -46°C.

The flora and fauna of Nevada are represented by species characteristic of deserts and semi-deserts. Here you can see various types of cacti, shrubs and herbaceous plants. The fauna of Nevada is represented by black-tailed hares, coyotes, cougars, ground squirrels, foxes, mice, skunks, many species of birds, various reptiles and, of course, one of the symbols of the state of Nevada – the desert bighorn.
