the view fr above. :)) ..... you can just see the house near end of cliff. looks out over pasture below and yakima nation reservation beyond the river. perpetual view. the yakima floods every year. and that pasture is under sev feet of water in bad years. across river is floods to some extent also. the islands in river below us is all designated yakima nation wildlife refuge. no building allowed. sweet!!...huh? ...found this little gem on the internet while sitting in apt looking for a new home to buy/lease after moving fr ca to wa state because of dh job re-location. location made it look like good buy/sell place. but lots, i mean lots, of wk need to fix/repair....and now too much in love to even think of leaving least for a few more years lollollol.view fr our br window a couple of years ago. morning river fog makes for fantastic scenery at times. so i gently removed my feline fuzzies from the bedroom. removed screen and opened window [shivering slightly lollollol] and took a few shots...normal and zoom. this is zoom. more pics of region and here at my flckr page


there are pics of fuzzies & my little "empress of the universe" which someone recently told her that i used to call her that and now her moma is a little upset w/me...cause of course an empress sometimes has to tell/remind her universe [and public] of her title and importance....frequently lollollol!!!

Your home is situated in a lovely spot. It reminds me a bit of Muskoka (near northern Ontario) where we lived until 3 yr. ago(partly to escape those heavy snow winters, and partly to get close to DD & grandkids.) The area we live in now has fairly moderate winters thanks to Lk. Ont.  and not a lot of snow. But they do get a lot of freezing rain here, and I'm soooo grateful to get away to Texas every winter.

I hope you get to stay at your place for many , many years. It would be a shame to get everything working perfectly for someone else to enjoy:)

thx carla. it is pretty sweet. was out a couple of years ago sitting in the dirt under the deck working on a trench for new water line...looked up....went and got the camera and it stayed with me the rest of the day. hot, dirty, sweaty....exhausted - then look up [just to rest for a minute] and there is the most beautiful view of brilliant blue sky, fluffy white clouds, sunlight sparkling on the river.i just had to take the pic. i don't know if i posted it on flickr or not ...or even if it is on the web. but i can still see it in my minds eye.

told a chat friend a cpl yrs ago...i had been out building short section of brick wall. hotter than ****, but i could hear the riffles in the river at bottom of cliff and it just seemed to make the 90+ temps seem not quite so bad lollollol.
