The house sits next to Pocatello's largest park/zoo. A large field is on the north and west; the backyard includes a fire pit and great views of the sunset. A convenience store is a block and a half away. WiFi is free. Pocatello is a railroad town, so there are often railroad noises in the background, but very few at night. Personally I like them. They help to keep me grounded in the way materials move in America and there is something sweet in the music of their passing.
