Best map I've ever seen!

Really, though, I don't think California should be considered Northwest, at all. Neither should any part of Montana. Really, it's all of Oregon and all of Washington with larger portions of Canada and a smaller amount of Idaho than what you have colored in.

If any part of California is considered Northwest then some small parts of Nevada should as well...

Nevada? Nevada doesn't resemble the PNW except for maybe a tiny amount I guess, a lot of Northern California coast is Identical to the Oregon and Washington Coasts's and we all share the same flora and fauna as well.

yes, but the very southeast of oregon represents similar attributes to the extreme northwest nevada. the regions simply does not end at imaginary lines on a map. It crosses so-called state boundries.

Agreed..I think it's all debatable but this is a pretty good map to begin with.

Canadians would look at that map and call it the Pacific southwest. It's a matter of perspective.
