Here's a very basic definition of GEOGRAPHY:

Geography is the study of the earth and its features, such as terrain, area measurements, and climate.

The word Geography comes from two Greek words that mean "to describe the earth." A very closely related topic is Cartography, the study and creation of maps.

Geography is divided into two main branches; human geography and physical geography.

However, there's also a smaller branch of study known as regional geography, which aims to understand or define the physical characteristics of a particular area, like the United States of America for instance.

The United States has a wide range of geographical features. These include arid deserts in the west, tropical rainforests in Hawaii (not to mention Washington state), the geographically unique Florida Everglades, and the frozen tundras of Alaska, to name only a few.
