Texas is home to six of the top fifty companies on the Fortune 500 list and fifty-one companies overall. The four major business enterprises in Texas, are: cattle and bison, cotton, timber, and oil. Rocky Mountains/Basin States: Caucasian, African American, Native American, Asian, and Hispanic The Economy of Oklahoma The major industries of Oklahoma are aviation, energy, transportation, equipment, food processing, electronics, and telecommunications. Four Fortune 500 companies and six Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered in Oklahoma. The Economy of New Mexico 262,000 acres is a formal recognition as a national presentation. Valley lows measure to 8,000ft. Highest Point: Longs Peak , 14,259 Oil and gas production, tourism, and federal government spending are important drivers of New Mexico's economy. State government has an elaborate system of tax credits and technical assistance to promote job growth and business investment, especially in new technologies. This region is covered with pine and spruce trees. Grassy meadows can also be found throughout this region. The Economy of Arizona The total gross state product for Arizona was $259 billion. This figure gives Arizona a larger economy than such countries as Ireland, Finland, and New Zealand. The composition of the state's economy is moderately diverse; although health care, transportation, and the government remain the largest sectors. Most of the grasses and pines are in the lower elevations; due to the lack of oxygen in higher elevations. PER CAPITA INCOME (USD $)

Tourism is also important to the economy with millions of visitors a year to Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, the Missouri River headwaters, and three of the five entrances to Yellowstone national Park. POPULATION PER SQUARE MILE American indians immigrated to North America from Asia by crossing via the Bering Strait. These indians hunted big game such as mammoths, bison etc. and this period of time was called the Paleo-Indian period and lasted from 12,000 BC- 9,000 BC. Then as the hunting patterns changed due to lakes drying up and big game dying off, the Indians entered into the Archaic Period between 9,000 BC- 500 AD. Then these indians started to live in small villages and planted crops and lived a more civilized life style. They also made pottery and made rock art and other types of art. This era was called the Fremont Period that lasted from 500 AD- 1300 AD. The vegetation in our region includes: mid latitude grasslands and scrub lands, and coniferous forests. The climates in our region are: Humid Subtropical, Semiarid Steppe, and a Highland (Alpine) Climates
