This is pretty much a subjective opinion based on my own reading, etc.. Joe could probably give you a lot more facts.
..refer to the area as West Texas Trans Pecos Big Bend region
It rolls off the tongue nicely. It looks "neat" in print. It Kinda sings - kinda like "Provo's Privy" (What Movie?). Heck, I don't know. Thanks for asking. (I'm glad someone asked!) I'm not sure if I made it up or borrowed it from someone or read it somewhere. Knowing me, I made it up. It actually covers three regions - "West Texas" - to me anything West I-35 (DFW/Austin/San Antonio) - "Trans Pecos" - the Trans Pecos region of Texas - encompassing the area West of the Pecos River - and of course the "Big Bend Region" - the area of West Texas down near the bend in the river. Yea, it's probably redundant - but as I said - I like the way it rolls off the tongue and since I type fast I can type it out in no time. It conveys a "feeling" that I get when heading West from East. One of the great things about living in East Texas is that when I go West I get to traverse most of the ecoregions of Texas - all except the coastal. Doing a Google search on "west texas trans pecos big bend region" I find only no occurances, so I'll claim it as my origional :idea:
