Washington State is clearly divided by Blue/Red between Western and Eastern. The unofficial border is the Cascade crest, (Snoqualmie Pass being the most famous point on the crest on I-90).

Even with weather, I can't tell you how many times I have escaped the clouds and into bright sunshine at this point, going east of course.

Big difference. Northern Idaho is lakes and forests (and the Palouse) while Southern Idaho resembles the interior west and northwest, which is dry scrub country.

Yep...although those are actually official boundaries, as determined by the state constitution.

The little tip on the Eastern Panhandle of WV is very different from the rest of the state. That area has become too suburban, and too similar to NOVA and MD.

Very very true. I was being hyperbolic, but from the point of view of Northeast Ohio, its us, and all the rest. In all reality, Ohio has 5 distinct regions, each with similarities to the others, but still with vast differences. like NEO and NWO are connected by the lake, but NWO is much more agrarian than NEO. and then NEO and SWO are both industrial, dominated by large cities, but NEO is liberal/democratic vs the republican stronghold in Cincy

I don't think many people would notice if we gave away north Louisiana to the three bordering states.

I second this. Northern Idaho is more similar to Washington State, west of the Cascades, atleast geographically. Even their time zone is still Pacific, as opposed to Mountain in the rest of the state.
