The view from our property
This will be an evolving page as we slowly cut or knock down trees but to follow the more current "blog" styling, the oldest pictures will be at the bottom and the newest ones will be on top.

What most of the spring has looked like
A common late afternoon. Blue sky and sunshine creating valley fog.
(9/10/09)The view from the fifth wheel living room
(June 09) My latest project has been to build us a "front porch" and steps up to the picnic area. The plan is to either move the trailer and the porch closer to the steps, or, move the trailer a little further from the steps and add another section to the porch
At any rate, it is now easier to carry food up to the picnic table (just out of sight on the left).
6/26/09 After knocking down a few more of the hated maple clusters we now have this view
We also have a new "access road" aka the cleared path for our water line
6/4/09 the view in the slot caused by the digging of a trench for the water pipe from our well This shot is from pretty much the same place as the July 2008 above

5/16/09 This picture was shot on the extreme western edge of the property. The colored strips are Tulips. Mossyrock is the home of a big bulb growing company. In the spring they have these beautiful rows of Tulips. then they cut the flowers off (most get thrown away) and then at some point later in year they dig up the bulbs to sell.
July 2008 and some more clearing-
In early April 2008 we visited again and saw that we will definitely have a summer view and a winter view.
In July of 2007 we did some clearing and got this shot
4/15/2007 This picture was shot before we bought the property or cleared anything.
