The term 'steppe' can be used to denote regions too dry to support a forest but not dry enough to be a desert. Steppes are usually characterized by a semi-arid climate. In North America, this environment is typical of transition areas between zones with a wetter climate and true deserts. Here a steppe is characterized by flowing, composite material plains brutally dominated by worn concrete or brick slabs and shapes, with few people and trees accompanying.
