Many who live here in San Ramon are delusional with the idea that we live in a boring place, stuck in the unappealing gray space between city and country, lacking the spirit of both. But San Ramon is actually a beautiful place to live: we have the hills, an abundance of hiking trails, Mt. Diablo in the distance, and all the lovely creatures that make these places their home. I’ve found that I am also blind to these wonders unless I search purposefully for them. But they’re always here, like they have been and will be.
