The Santa Ynez Mountains

A mountain is a mass of land over 1,000 feet tall. The mountains behind Santa Barbara are named the Santa Ynez Mountains. The plants, animals, and human activities are different in the mountains than at the coast.

On the very top of our mountains, there are pine trees. There are very few houses, but people like to rock climb and hike in the mountains. You will find deer, and if you are lucky even a bear!

To Do

• Add the mountains above the hills.

• Label them “Santa Ynez Mountains.”
