Map of the Sky Island region of Arizona, Sonora, New Mexico, and Chihuahua

This map shows the major "Sky Islands" of the southwest region. The Sierra Mazatan just east of  Hermosillo is probably the southernmost Sky Island. The westernmost Sky Island is the Sierra El Humo. The northernmost is questionable. The Pinal Mountains are certainly a Sky Island, but how Madrean they are is questionable. Mt. Turnbull, the Santa Teresas, and the Pinaleño Mountains are all at the northern extent of the Sky Islands. The eastern edge of the Madrean Sky Islands is disputed. I have arbitrarily decided what to include on this map.

I have made a version of this map that is suitable for printing in fairly large format. It also has a list of the 63 Sky Islands shown on the map with peak elevations in meters and feet and notes on many sierras. You can download it here (WARNING - it is ~30MB): Map of the Madrean Sky Islands
