What are mountains????
Mountains are formed when plate tectonics move and push into each other, making the earth's crust higher and higher. As you go higher on a mountain you see less and less organisms growing because some plants and animals can't withstand the high altitude and cold weather. The Rocky Mountains which are located in Colorado, have a latitude of 44 degrees north and 110 degrees west. The precipitation at the top of the mountain is mostly snow. In the summer, temperatures reach 70 to 80 degrees, and at night temperatures drop to 40 degrees. In winter high winds and sudden blizzards occur. Lastly, spring time brings warm, cold, wet, and dry climates.
These are some images of some fauna that live in the mountains.
