We just learned about the U.S. Interior Highlands.

Part of the U.S. Interior Highlands is the Ozarks.
The name Ozarks comes from the French word "Aux" meaning "Of" and either the state name Arkansas, or the river arc nearby.
So it was either Aux-Arkansas, or Aux-arc, which got changed to Ozarks.
Because it was so long ago, nobody is really sure where it came from.

One fun part of the Ozarks mountains is a place called the Devil's Honeycomb, part of Hughes Mountain.
There are rocks there that stick up like columns or posts all over the place, and it almost looks like a bees honeycomb.

These mountains go through Arkansas, MIssouri and Oklahoma.
