When the hubby and I were ready to buy a house, we wanted out of the city and something more "rural." We found a quiet place in a decent neighborhood that we liked. Not rural but it will have to do for now. And we have a great view of the mountains thanks to the riverbed across the street. With all the paved roads and sudden surge of businesses popping up you tend to forget that you live in the middle of no where until you are walking your dog early in the morning and encounter a pack of coyotes. Step on and get stung by an scorpion in your kitchen, or you have to call animal control because there is a snake in your car (or just yesterday in the garden! Yikes!) We tend to forget that we are on their turf.
