Coastal Mountain Ranges in Mexico – December 20th, 201020.2N 103W
While central Mexico appears drier and tan in color, the coastal areas appear mostly fertile and green. Two greenish brown ridges of mountains can be observed parallel to the coasts: the Sierra Madre Oriental (east) and Sierra Madre Occidental (west).
In the lower left quadrant, Lake Chapala, the country’s largest freshwater lake, appears light green in color. It is located southeast of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and is situated on the border between the states of Jalisco and Michoacán, at 1,524 metres above sea level.
