What counties are in this region?

I wonder what counties are considered part of the High Plains region? The reason I ask is that when researching the placement of Texas cities and towns, Wikipedia and other references will identify which county and state a place is in, but not which tourist region. For example: I deduce that Dallam County is in this region only because the county seat,Dalhart, is already listed here. However, it would be nice to know for certain which other counties are also here. I have spent ages looking at maps trying to guess which region a Texas town is in, based on the shape of the region matching the county border, but not knowing for certain that I have it right. - Huttite 21:32, 12 December 2009 (EST)

Texugo's map here shows the divisions quite clearly. It might be nice to spread bits of that map around to the seven top level regions of Texas. --Peter Talk 22:15, 12 December 2009 (EST)
Thanks for that, though comparing that to this map from the (Texas) Panhandle Tourism Marketing Council suggests they think High Plains make up almost all of the Panhandle. My plea was not only for a map but the county names as well, so I know where to draw the line based on text. And not need to consult a fairly indistinct and featureless map that a rather vague line has been drawn on. From these maps and accompaning descriptions, I gather that: Dallam, Sherman, Hansford, Ochiltree, Lipscomb, Hartley, Moore, Hutchinson, Roberts, Hemphill, Oldham, Potter, Carson, Gray, Wheeler, Deaf Smith, Randall, Armstrong, Donley, and Collingsworth counties are in the High Plains region. (Which leaves Parmer, Castro, Swisher, Briscoe, Hall and Childress counties to go into other regions.) - Huttite 05:39, 13 December 2009 (EST)
