::::I would agree, that seems to be the missing piece to this region puzzle. -- [[User:ArizonaTourism|ArizonaTourism]] 21:19, 18 April 2007 (EDT)
:::Prescott, I think, fits reasonably into the incipient [[Western Arizona]] region; it is more west of the center of the state than north, and in terms of atmosphere, climate, culture, etc., has more in common with points west than the eastern part (or Phoenix, as you point out). Payson is a harder case, and a good example of why I opposed converting the old Eastern Arizona page into the "Southeastern Arizona and Sky Islands" page (SASI) that exists now. My preferred solution would be to re-create [[Eastern Arizona]] as a region, and then have sub-regions of SASI and [[Mogollon Rim]], which would include Payson as well as [[Show Low]], [[Globe]], and so on. See the earlier discussion at the top of the page.
:::Fact is, there's no regional structure that really works well for a state as large and complex as Arizona. [[New Mexico]], where I've written most of the articles, is much easier due to the significance of the Rio Grande and Sangre de Cristos, and the same kind of geographical focus is one reason to use the Mogollon Rim sub-region (look at how I set up [[North Central New Mexico]]). It's not as simple here, but still strikes me as the way to go. -- [[User:Bill-on-the-Hill|Bill-on-the-Hill]] 09:48, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
