As much as the cost of living here disgusts me, there are a few perks. It is kind of cool that even though it is the 10th largest city in the US there is still a fair amount of outdoorsy.
Not totally out of the ordinary to see a wild turkey at the dog park
I have seen deer, bobcat, coyotes, and tarantulas in city parks.
City is never that far, though.

Was helping. :)
