- from U.S. Landscapes
Your journey starts on the East Coast of the United States. Here, the Atlantic Ocean laps at the shores of the coastal plain.
That’s the area of low land along the coast of an ocean. This land is at sea level, the same height as the ocean surface. Going west, the land rises in the Piedmont, the hills east of the Appalachian Mountains. Between the sea and these mountains, you'll explore all sorts of different landscapes. Feel the ocean breeze on your face as you take the first step of this trip.
