For years we have tried to find a place to live in the USA
during the summer that we liked at much as Mazatlan in the winter.
The various places we have tried included the Oakland hills in
California, Incline Village, Nevada (which borders Lake Tahoe), and
Belvedere, Marin County,
California. Well, in 2003, we moved again, this time to Reno,
Nevada. So far, of all the places we have tried, we like this one the
best. In what follows, I'll try to explain why.
All of the images below are "thumbnails."

Let's start with the views. Here is what we see
standing on our balcony and looking to the east. Now when
we lived in the Oakland hills and in Incline Village, we
also had great views, so views aren't everything, but they
don't hurt either.
Here is the view looking west. The mountains are
usually topped with snow until sometime in June. You might
expect Reno to be dry and desert-like, and in general you
would be right, but our area is very heavily irrigated,
and hence lush and green.
Where better to enjoy the nice surroundings than on
our upstairs patio, which is located just outside the
master bedroom. We often fire up the barbie and have a
glass of wine while relaxing here.

of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the
most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think
we're the greatest hunters on earth! Anne Tyle
