I'm not sure what you are asking but I will offer this information. Eastern Pennsylvania is mostly farmlands in rural areas, or small,medium, and large cities. Cutting diagonally across the state from northeast Pennsylvania(but beginning in Maine) through southwest Pennsylvania are theAppalachian M…ountains. This is an old mountain range, older thanthe Rocky Mountains. The Appalachian Mountains were formed when theSuper Continent ripped apart. As part of the Appalachian Mountainsin Pennsylvania is the Allegheny Mountain range. At thesouthern-central border of Pennsylvania the Blue Ridge Mountains(part of the Appalachians) go through part of Maryland andVirginia. The Appalachian Mountain range extends far into thesouthern states, ending just north of the city of Atlanta, Georgia. So, the central part of PA (most of it) are mountainous. Thesemountains created a huge barrier to westward movement duringcolonial days. Migration did not occur until the mid to late 1700s.Obviously, there are deep valleys near the mountains. The valleysare lush, perfect for agriculture/farming. Western Pennsylvania (north and south) are rolling hills and someflatter lands (but not nearly as flat as Ohio to the west). SW PAhas some steep hills that pedestrians walk in cities, but it isstrenuous walking. All of the State of Pennsylvania has creeks, streams, rivers,lakes, and manmade dams. These provide plentiful fishing andirrigation of crops. The State has warm to hot/humid weather insummers; ice, snow, and cold temps in winters. Pennsylvania is a beautiful Statte with thick forests, plentifulgame/fish, scenic views, and adequate employment opportunities incities. ( Full Answer )
