I like Bakersfield--sometimes, when the weather is right and my tummy is satisfied. There isn't much to do but when you stop and look at the mountains, you appreciate living in Bakersfield and at that point, living in general. I never really hiked much until I moved to Bakersfield. My favorite spot is the Windwolves Preserve. I also really like that there isn't traffic. I like that on the streets I can drive 55 miles per hour and I like that the majority of the houses are new and pretty. However, I hate how small it is. I feel like this city is a bubble. It literally is one because all the smog gets trapped here in the Valley and the air quality is so horrible that people say you can get valley fever which kills many!
