Jacksonville just west of Medford,is a great little town. the applegate valley is amazing. you are centrally located to grantspass and the rogue to the south the Klamath river and its tributaries. the Illinois and the redwood hiway to the coast is a beautiful drive. southern ore coast is awesome. I spent 30years of my life in southern ore I could go on forever. Ashland is just another bullshit liberal college town like all the rest.

If youre really interested in at risk youth, Get your teaching cert in special education. You'll pretty much be able to move anywhere and have a job within a year or so. It worked for me.
I'll second Lhowe on Missoula. I lived in Durango for 15 years and Missoula is just as cool but bigger.

Eugene, Oregon?

I do not live in Eugene but I have spent some time there and really enjoy the town and the University of Oregon. It is a location that I have thought would be nice to relocate to. Both the Willamette and McKenzie rivers run right through town, the coast is not far to the west and the Cascade mountains are a short drive east.

As far as Utah goes it is difficult to find any diversity in small towns with the exception of Park City, Moab and maybe Price. Most of the state is subject to the extreme right influence of the Mormon church. In many of the small towns you may find no other non mormons or very few. If you are mormon then that may not be an issue.

On the other hand Utah has some of the most diverse topography and climate of any of the western states! Oh, and we do allow gay marraige now thanks to the open minded Federal Judge Robert Shelby!!

Good luck with your search!
