We live in a rural area, but sometimes it is still hard to get beyond our yard. It's not really safe to walk alone. There are quite a few hunting seasons, and even with hunter's orange I don't feel quite at ease in the woods those days - plus I suspect hunters would rather I wasn't interfering with their hunt anyway. Living near a highway, even though not a super highway, is still dangerous due to fast moving vehicles. And last, we do have to drive to get anywhere, so we spend plenty of time in the car instead of walking where we need to go. However, there certainly are many green views and opportunities to enjoy our yard. It's great to read that it doesn't take oodles of space to reap the benefits of natural surroundings.
