After all the rain this spring we've had, the family took advantage of getting outside to enjoy this great weather. I've lived in Roseville for a year and a half, and have only scratched the surface when it comes to parks and walking trails.
We spent about 90 minutes exploring several local trails. The city (and Placer County) is a walker's paradise that can take you away from the noise and chaos of the city, and puts you right smack dab in the middle of the countryside. We saw deer, jack rabbits and even a couple of otters in the creek. Everything was SO green and colorful this spring. After six years of drought, and nothing by brown grass and dead shrubs, there's something rejuvenating about being able to walk outside and experience so many colors
I love where we live, but if I'm honest, I do miss the openness and countryside where my grandparents and dad grew up. I think, deep down inside, I'm a little bit more "country" than I am "city" these days. It's nice to know I can still get the best of both worlds a few minutes outside my front door.
