What’s A Plateau?
It’s a tableland, an elevated tract of land ranging from 1,000 feet elevation to as high as 16,000 feet plus. Famous plateaus are Tibet, Mexico City and the high plateaus inhabited by the Aztecs, Incas and Toltecs. Often plateaus are surrounded by the dramatic beauty of mountain ranges, as is Tibet. It is also used to describe the reaching of a point where one levels off, as in “I’ve reached a plateau.” Suellen Ocean is the author of the satirical novel Gone North. Available here:
