It has been a little over a year since my husband and I moved from Clovis CA to Coarsegold, CA located in the Sierra Nevada foothills, 20 miles south of Yosemite National Park. In that year I have discovered several things:
-The pace of life it slower.
-There is less traffic.
-May through September is "Tourist Season".
-It cools off at night even the during the hottest days of summer.
-Don't put away winter clothes until mid May.
-The chorus of frogs on a spring night is loud enough to keep a person awake.
-We live in a wildlife area, we have seen coyotes, deer, and a bobcat or two.
-It is easier to make hamburger bunsnfrom scratch than go to the store to buy them.
-Sitting on the front porch in the evening enjoying the scenery is better than most TV programs.
-You need to plan ahead to make the most of a trip to "town".
Having lived in the city all of my life it has been fun experiencing mountain life.
