FINDING THE WAYS THAT WORK

CHALLENGES

REGION

Defining the Big Bend region is literally all over the map. Tourists tend to think of the region as just Big Bend National Park. Locals in the region use the term “Tri-County” to refer to Jeff Davis, Presidio, and Brewster counties. Some local participants indicated that Interstate 10 was a distinct geographic boundary between north and south.

 

National news media often refer to the area as the “Permian Basin” or the “Trans-Pecos region” when writing about the oil and gas industry.

 

The State of Texas and many expert scientists use the term “Far West Texas” to define a broad area of up to 16 counties from Midland heading west past El Paso and even into western New Mexico. The map below shows this version of what is considered West Texas.
