Mexico - July 25th, 2011

Mainland Mexico show fertile green land along its coastal plains, both on the Pacific side (lower left) and that of the Gulf of Mexico (upper right). The central part of the country is considerably drier.

Two mountain ranges run down the sides of the country, parallel to the coasts: the Sierra Madre Oriental (east) and the Sierra Madre Occidental (west). The Mexican altiplano occupies the vast expanse of land between the eastern and western sierra madres.
