I am planning a move to the Phoenix area from Greenville SC, leaving this September. I have been here for 2 years , made some cool friends and great hiking experiences.Theres nothing i really dislike about Greenville. Its a great small city and I absolutley love hiking the green landscape in NC and TN.

Now I know its normal to miss the good things about your previous town when moving and it will pass in time. Is the Brown desert as beautiful as the greenery in the east? Which do you prefer? How soon did your love for either one grow into a love of both? Plenty of green north of Phoenix a few hours .

I have never been out west and I chose Phoenix for the lack of snow and rain, and mild to warm winter temps. A little too cold for me here in the winter in Greenville. Also chose it for the IT job growth there.

Everyone I have talked to thats lived in Phoenix or visited, they love it. So tell me, what has your experience been moving from east to west?

I like to call different areas, a “different kind of beautiful.”
No, the desert is not green most of the time, but it has the purple, craggy mountains, the majestic giant saguaro in some places, the Joshua tree in others. During the spring, the wildflowers bloom for another kind of beautiful.
Just think of it as “brown is beautiful, baby!”

I couldn't do it. I grew up in PA, and I like green. I like trees, moss, thunderstorms, and lightning bugs. I'll never move to a desert.
