The Appalachian Mountains are not tall mountains compared to many other mountain chains, but they are old mountains. Although the Appalachians are one long continuous chain of mountains, different people call these mountains by different names depending where they live. In the state of Virginia these mountains are called the ‘Blue Ridge Mountains,’ in New York they are called the ‘Catskills,’ in Vermont they are called the ‘Green Mountains,’ and in New Hampshire they are called the ‘White Mountains’. 
The Rocky Mountains, or simply the ‘Rockies’, are found west of the Mississippi River, there are many impressive and tall mountains in this chain.
The Sierra Nevada & Cascade Mountains hug the entire west coast of the United States.
The Sierras, which start in southern California, are known for their beauty. The Cascade Mountain range stretches from northern California into the states of Oregon and Washington, and on into Canada. All of these are volcanic mountains.
