I drove to North Austin (Duval Springs) for the first time. The lots were just huge, probably 300 feet wide each. The houses were a little larger than what you'd find in a typical American suburb. But still there were large stretches of land between each house. The area felt much more wild than the core of Austin. I heard the bugs singing, and another guy reported that he saw a deer running through the properties.

It seems like a nice place to live, though I'm not sure if I want to stay here in Austin. I miss the mountains of California.
