A city is a relatively large and permanent human settlement.

Cities generally have complex systems for sanitation, utilities, land usage, housing, and transportation.

Moonlight Mountain Hike

A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
