This is a good map, but why did you include areas of Nebraska and North and South Dakota? With the exception of the Black Hills, those areas are FLAT.

Similar to what I said about your map of the midwest. Include all of Colorado. There is no justification for leaving out the eastern plains, especially when you do include all of Wyoming, some of which is just as flat as eastern CO, parts of the Dakotas and Nebraska. Western Nebraska, in particular, is very flat. Even the eastern plains of CO are hillier. IMO, the Dakotas and Nebraska are solid mid-west.

In Street View eastern CO and western Kansas look exactly the same - is there a cultural difference though you can't see?

Well, yes, they're in different states! The Coloradans relate more to things Colorado. Eastern Wyoming is no more "mountain" than eastern Colorado, and the western Dakotas and W. Nebraska have nothing in common with the mountain west.

Why all those flat areas, but not Central and Southern New Mexico. It's western and mountainous.

Unless this doesn't qualify (The Sandia Mountains outside of Albuquerque):

^^^Very true, but neither is eastern CO, which she calls "midwest".
