Take it from a Californian:

And take it from this Southern Oregonian. Far Northern (mostly just coastal) California is definitely more part of the PNW than the Coastal SW, culturally, geographically, flora-wise, etc. And if "Cascadia" is your definition of the PNW, then there is no way to even argue around if it's included. Even the US Census Bureau includes it in the Northwest.

The very northern edge is part of the Pacific Northwest. California is a large state by any standard! And the northern half culturally, biodiversty, and geographically speaking has alot in common with the rest of the PNW so it should be included.

I think the boundary between the Northwest and Southwest is Redding. When driving down from Oregon, in say Yreka, it's like, wow, technically I'm in California.

By the time I'm in Redding and see palm trees, it's like crap, I'm in California!

Then there is Ecotopia, another permutation of the same idea. Demographically and ecologically it also makes sense. On the west coast there is far more intense variation going E-W than going N-S.

I know, right? When you hit the palm tree line you know you've arrived in a foreign land. Even in Eureka there are a fair amount of palm trees though.

Eureka is still 2 hours from the OR border
