A map of the Rocky Mountain region would include all the states where mountains of the Rocky Mountain range are found: Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. The Canadian Rockies are a part of the same mountain range, which extends north through British Columbia and Alberta.
The Rocky Mountains, also called the Rockies, are one of the major mountain ranges of North America. They extend 3,000 miles, from northeastern British Columbia to northern Arizona. The highest peak in the Rockies is Colorado's Mount Elbert, which reaches an elevation of 14,440 ft. The Rocky Mountains get their name from the translation of their original Cree name "as-sin-wati."
