Hmmm, except for the state, my area has almost no labels on that map. It's probably just as well. On a real map, there are too many places named after army generals and such that fought the Natives. I suppose it's tough to translate Sheridan, Crook, Custer and so on.

Other locations are simple: Devil's Tower or the Bear Lodge, Sundance, Thunder Basin, etc.

Whomever coined Goodland, KS was obviously a land speculator working back east.

And "The Lovely One" for some town in the Texas pandhandle (Amarillo?)? They obviously have not listened to James McMurty's "Levelland"

No, but I met the sheriff who tried to arrest the trespassing river. He didn't have much luck, as I recall.
