The Ozarks are not really Midwestern; I think of them as being a little south of the unofficial Midwestern/Southern borders...

Much of the Midest is "level", although the landscape in Iowa/eastern Nebraska, from memory, has quite a few rolling hills of corn; also traveling west in Kansas and Nebraska, the land elevates quite a bit, and the western portions of these states are much higher than its eastern counterparts..

The Chicago area is quite flat, though..

The Ozarks are indeed Southern. The Ft. Smith area doesn't look anything like midwestern in the slightest bit.

I hate to break it to you both, but the Ozarks begin at their northernmost point in SW St Louis county.

I grew up running around in the foothills of the Ozarks and the St Francois mountains.
I am from here;

Its the Midwest, not the South.

A case can be made for both. The Ozarks extend well into Northwestern Arkansas. Arkansas is NOT a midwestern state.

You said that the Ozarks were southern, I corrected you.

You say tomato I say tomatoe
You say potato I say potatoe
You say pajama I say pajama
----Let's call the whole thing off

Seems to me the Ozarks might be part of the Mid-South and the lower Midwest.

You stated that the Ozarks are the midwest, and since they are located in Arkansas as well it can't be soley midwestern..So I corrected YOU!!

Lets review here, shall we?
Note the bolded word in my initial post about the Ozarks.
Just in case you missed it, I said NORTHERNMOST.
Northernmost.
I never said the entirety of the Ozarks were in the Midwest.
