Basin and Range province map

The Basin and Range province is shown in pink. There are four distinct regions or subprovinces within the Basin and Range. Mojave National Preserve lies within the Sonoran desert subprovince.

The landscapes of all of the Basin and Range Parks are dominated by the elongate mountains and valleys and volcanic activity generated by stretching of the crust.
