That would be South Texas....West Texas has a large Anglo presence, especially because of the oil industry and large scale farming. Most people associate Midland and Odessa as "West Texas" and those areas are not comparable to Imperial Valley in demographics, landscape or economy. The one large west Texas city of El Paso has half a million people, and Imperial County's total population isn't even half that size. Remember Good ol' GW was from West Texas too, we we don't have any ex.presidents from Imperial County either.

I think something that conjures up Chicano and rural culture is more in tune with Imperial County, not just sheer percentage of Hispanic population, because that is similar to many parts of California and the Southwest.

I think lotr is lord of the rings, but I don't get the connection with Grey Haven. I'm not a fan.

Also, the Coahcella Valley deserves a nod to acknowledge the massive gay and retirement communities that are so prevelent there. I guess Cali is too diverse to have all of the idiosyncracies on one map. Also, coastal San Diego needs to be reworked with a better, more descriptive name. Or is it too late to make changes??
West Texas by appearance. Being 70% Hispanic means little as Texas too has a large Hispanic population.
