The eastern part of the state is in the Central Plains, while the Great Plains makes up the west. The eastern border is called the Red River Valley and represents the lowest point, 750 ft (229 m) in North Dakota's topography. North Dakota's highest point is found in the region called the Missouri Plateau Butte, which is home to the state's highest peak, White Butte 3,506 ft (1,069 m).
