Actually, all of western South Dakota is on mountain time, as is western North Dakota, and western Nebraska. However it is weird that Baker City, OR and Rapid City, SD are in the same time zone.

Yeah geographically I would say about west of the 98th parallel where it stops being humid and starts being dry.

I keep getting alerts from this forum thread and REALLY the comments are starting to get a little redundant. LOL A suggestion: travel this wide open country and get your answers there.

Yeah...essentially the same as well as nearly the 100th meridian. Actually, I personally knew I was in "the West" as I approached the Texas panhandle from Oklahoma and my Midwestern allergies stopped bothering me and I could breath. So...I decided to move west to New Mexico and had no allergy problems...for about three weeks until my new allergies kicked in.

Yes, and you are right on the mark about western ND.

I think the mountain time zone is too wide, but I understand why. The insertion of the zone into Eastern Oregon is mainly there to lineup with Boise, where most of the media comes from in this region.

It is also interesting that the mountain time zone expands into Nevada in atleast two places...Jackpot, Nevada, and West Wendover, Nevada, the only two locations in Nevada that observe mountain time. Why? Casino visitors from Idaho into Jackpot, and casino visitors from Utah into West Wendover. So you go from these communities from the mountain zone in Nevada for just a few miles.
