Over The River And Through The Woods

This is a view from the mountain ridge in the early morning about a mile and half down the road from us. I love this view because it is ever changing depending on the time of day and weather conditions.


These are a couple of the beauties would come to the yard almost daily for a couple of years. They were curious about what we were doing. They still come to the yard from time to time, but not as often as they once did since they started logging all over the mountain side.

The following pictures are shots of the 5 miles of road that leads to our house.

A couple of the grandchildren used to call this stretch of road our driveway. There are other houses along that 5 mile stretch. We do have to share you know!

Still it makes for a nice peaceful drive.

Wishing you a blessed weekend. Next week I will show you the current construction job that J.D. is doing here at the little house on the mountain.

Hi Jo, Love your "driveway". You guys sure have been busy and you are so right, you do have a talented guy. Looks like you put all those rocks you picked to good use. You two have done a wonderful job. Gives a better feeling of home when you have much of yourself in it. Best to you, Barbara
