For those living in populous areas of Southern California, Southern Nevada and Arizona, staying in the city during a large-scale emergency could prove deadly. But, having a retreat location in Utah or Idaho may not be a possibility because of the sheer distances involved, which makes northern Arizona a location worth considering. It can be accessed in an emergency on a single tank of gas for most of those living in or around Los Angeles, Las Vegas or Phoenix, and it is remote enough to keep you out of the way of the golden horde as it makes its way out of cities in search of resources. In the briefing below, provided by the Strategic Relocation BlogSkousen identifies the safest spots in Northern Arizona by highlighting, among other things, security considerations and how to find water with ease.
Mountain peaks of Colorado The summit of Mount Elbert at 14, feet 4, This point, which holds the distinction of being the highest low elevation point of any state,   is higher than the high elevation points of 18 states and the District of Columbia.
A view of the arid high plains in Southeastern Colorado Plains[ edit ] A little less than half of Colorado is flat and rolling land. Corn, wheat, hay, soybeans, and oats are all typical crops.
Most villages and towns in this region boast both a water tower and a grain elevator. Irrigation water is available from both surface and subterranean sources.
Surface water sources include the South Platte, the Arkansas River, and a few other streams. Subterranean water is generally accessed through artesian wells. Heavy use of wells for irrigation caused underground water reserves to decline. Eastern Colorado hosts considerable livestock, such as cattle ranches and hog farms.
This region is partially protected from prevailing storms that blow in from the Pacific Ocean region by the high Rockies in the middle of Colorado. On the other side of the Rockies, the significant population centers in Western Colorado which is not considered the "Front Range" are the cities of Grand JunctionDurangoand Montrose.
Within the interior of the Rocky Mountains are several large parks which are high broad basins. The valley sits between the Sangre De Cristo Mountains and San Juan Mountainsand consists of large desert lands that eventually run into the mountains. This area drains to the east and the southeast, ultimately either via the Mississippi River or the Rio Grande into the Gulf of Mexico.
Above this only alpine vegetation grows. Only small parts of the Colorado Rockies are snow-covered year round. Much of the alpine snow melts by mid-August with the exception of a few snowcapped peaks and a few small glaciers. The Colorado Mineral Beltstretching from the San Juan Mountains in the southwest to Boulder and Central City on the front range, contains most of the historic gold- and silver-mining districts of Colorado.
Mount Elbert is the highest summit of the Rocky Mountains. The 30 highest major summits of the Rocky Mountains of North America all lie within the state. The city of Grand Junction is located in the heart of the valley The Western Slope area of Colorado includes the western face of the Rocky Mountains and all of the state to the western border.
This area includes several terrains and climates from alpine mountains to arid deserts. The Western Slope includes many ski resort towns in the Rocky Mountains and towns west of the mountains.
It is less populous than the Front Range but includes a large number of national parks and monuments. From west to east, the land of Colorado consists of desert lands, desert plateaus, alpine mountains, National Forests, relatively flat grasslands, scattered forests, buttes, and canyons in the western edge of the Great Plains.
The famous Pikes Peak is located just west of Colorado Springs. Its isolated peak is visible from nearly the Kansas border on clear days, and also far to the north and the south.
Here, the Green River briefly crosses over into Colorado. The Colorado River flows through Glenwood Canyonand then through an arid valley made up of desert from Rifle to Parachutethrough the desert canyon of De Beque Canyonand into the arid desert of Grand Valleywhere the city of Grand Junction is located.
Also prominent in or near the southern portion of the Western Slope are the Grand Mesawhich lies to the southeast of Grand Junction; the high San Juan Mountains, a rugged mountain range; and to the west of the San Juan Mountains, the Colorado Plateaua high arid region that borders Southern Utah.
The monument is made up of high desert canyons and sandstone rock formations. Grand Junction, Colorado is the largest city on the Western Slope. Grand Junction and Durango are the only major centers of television broadcasting west of the Continental Divide in Colorado, though most mountain resort communities publish daily newspapers.
Grand Junction is located along Interstate 70the only major highway in Western Colorado. This railroad also provides the tracks for Amtrak 's California Zephyr passenger train, which crosses the Rocky Mountains between Denver and Grand Junction via a route on which there are no continuous highways.How You Can Help as Migrant Caravans Arrive at the U.S.
