Its interesting how there is a significant line between east and west roughly following Monterrey/SanAntonio/Austin/Dallas/OklahomaCity/Wichita/Topeka/Lincoln/Sioux falls/Grand Forks/Winnipeg. The terrain doesn’t change much though the land fertility and rainfall might.
I wonder what that big cluster of light is in Saskatchewan...
I saw the same, drew the same “land here’s right nice...” and that’s where folk settled. There is also the increase in elevation and the fact you start to see the Rockies somewheres in Kansas and Nebraska.
Ma done told Pa to stop right here, we ain’t a climbin’ any mountains. Build my house now.
I think the big cluster you're looking at (sort of an arrow pointing to the NE) is Edmonton, then you can go SSW through Red Deer to Calgary. A few hundred miles east of Red Deer is Saskatoon, and SE of that is Regina (rhymes with ...).
Thanks, I noticed that also. The line is about 96 degrees West longitude.
