Today that I was running on dick shinaut park over here in the east side, by the side , I don't know if I was influenced by the beautiful weather, but if kind of reminded me of Southern California, with the hills in the back and the lush green upkeep of the landscape in the apartments next to the park. There's parts of El Paso that I've passed through at times and they remind me of Phoenix, don't know if its the landscape or the lay of the land, is their any parts of El Paso that remind u of other city's?

Default Landscaping?

Maybe the Italian Cypress in the background reminded you of California? I always think California when I see those, even though I remember having them in our home when I was a kid, you just see a lot more of them in the neighborhoods in LA.

I always thought the older parts of El Paso resembled Californian cities more than more immediate cities in the area. I think this is a function of El Paso's relative age - many parts of El Paso boomed from the 1880s to the 1920s, while Albuquerque and Phoenix mushroomed after World War II. Many of the housing styles like Late Victorian, California bungalow and Spanish revival had a strong influence in El Paso and in older parts of L.A.
