View Full Version : New Home-Winter

Many of the NW board members know that I recently relocated to the NE corner of Washington. As luck would have it, we were greeted by the most snowfall in the area in 15 to 20 years. Here's a few pics of our new place in the snow!
Hiking and skiing trails...this is at the end of our driveway!
About all we can see of the yard. Only about 2' in this photo. At the deepest we had over 40"
The beagles enjoying a hike in fresh powder.
Splash heading out for a roll after 16" of new snow
Sunrise on the 2.5 mile loop.
A cold morning
Mama moose; she had just crossed the driveway with her baby
Sunset on the Columbia...spring is coming!

Nice pics! Look on the bright side with all that snow...at least you'll be able to put off mowing the lawn for a little longer in the Spring! Oughta be all sorts of beagle tunnels that start showing themselves when the warm winds of Spring start to blow.

Looks like a great place to live. Hope you and your wife (and dogs and horse) are happy there.
Sweet!...Moose in the yard. Perfect...

Have you let them dogs run wabbits yet? Looks like the perfect place for you all. I've also heard the Columbia has a healthy smallmouth population. I think you're going to like it there!

Nice!!, do you have hunting right out the back (and front) door?

All the land to the north of us is actually owned by the city of Deer Park...hiking and skiing trails, so no hunting there, but also no neighbors in the forseeable future! I have seen pictures of some huge whitetails, both live and harvested that have been taken within 5 miles of the middle of town. So, yes, hunting is very near at hand. We've seen lots of grouse, turkey, whitetails and of course our neighborhood moose. Also just read an article indicating some 10,000+ miles of small steams in this corner of the state, so lots of bushwacking and chasing brookies this summer!
Haven't turned the hounds loose yet. Have seen no rabbit tracks or indication of any bunnies at least near home. Haven't even talked to anyone here who does any rabbit hunting. We'll keep looking and in the meantime enjoy our hikes and fishing:)
Very nice Randy! Let's see some pics of house and barn.

I'll try to post a few more today, but I'm having trouble getting anything to upload. If not today, it'll be next week since I'm headed to Florida for a week of meetings tomorrow.

Nice place, thanks for posting the pic's.
Now I realize why my wife didn't jump at the chance to move to Spokane last year, when I was considering it. Deeeeep...

Spokane is close to an hour away from my location in N. Idaho.
Yes there was snow this year.

I finally was able to get my super slow satellite uplink to load my photos. Here's a few snapshots from tonight, before the next big storm hits us Friday...only supposed to get 4-6" this weekend:)
Front of the barn looking east...and a fine looking piece of farm equipment:)
Just a little snow left...the skylites are 9 1/2' from the ground.
The hayburners enjoying the afternoon sun. We have temporary pens in the barn, the Noble stalls have been delivered and ready to set up as soon as we finish getting the insulation on the walls.
House, looking southeast
Back of house, looking northwest and the campfire area
Shot this photo yesterday at breakfast...through the kitchen window...it's gonna be a tough place to live:)
Sorry about the quality, just haven't had time to do any editing, but hopefully you all get the idea.
Great place Randy. I like the tractor!

Better get your snowcave-building practice in now! Old man Winter is starting to give up.

From my office in downtown Seattle, you are not very likable at this moment Randy.

Wow! What a gorgeous place!
