So far I've lived in San Dimas for 12 years. I've spent all my teenage years, and a small part of my young adult life, in this oft-neglected corner of Los Angeles County. San Dimas is a nice town with a surprising, even sometimes fascinating, physical/cultural geography. Many of the younger, more urban-aspiring residents of this city like to complain about its "backwoods" nature (i.e. anything east of the 605). I sometimes agree, but when I look outside my window on a clear, sunny day with Mt. Baldy staring straight at me as if happy to emerge at last from the summer haze, and I see my lovely little neighborhood in all its pre-WWII suburban beauty, I remember that, in fact, I love living here.
