Mountain House

Mountain House is one of those master-planned communities -- on steroids. After nearly two decades of planning, they started construction maybe a year ago, and the first wave of homes, a fire station, mini-market and a school are in place. (No, really, it even says so on their web site.)

Given the entire city is new, there is just one main office for getting the '411' -- kinda handy, really. Everything still looks pretty pristine, tidy, a little too Stepford Wives, in a way... Ah, now we get down to the dust and dirt. Or not... it's one of the extensive preserve and trail areas.

I don't know if it's just the point of view, but these homes look a bit more lived in and cozy to me. One of the two old-style bridges, with a recent year stamp... though still written in Roman numerals. Wicklund's Market is the one and only store here (currently; for more, you have to go to Tracy).
