The backyard of our house in southern Utah was, as I have said many times, about the size of a pea. The only windows in the main part of the house faced the backyard, and there was a rock wall that was as tall as the roof of the house. You quite literally felt like you were in a cave because you could see no sky - you could only see giant boulders (and a tiny patch of grass if you looked down). For example, this picture was taken as I stepped out the door into my backyard:
This morning, I took some pictures of my new backyard. (I took these pictures from my bedroom window upstairs.)
I can't wait until summer, when the grass is green and the trees are lush.
