Here’s a bird’s eye view of the land taken a few years ago in 2003. The land was logged in 1998.
"Aerial View 1" shows the land highlighted in red. The two round piles are burn piles of brush and wood debris. That area is the northwest corner of the property and it is the primary area we are developing. The house will be in the NW corner with the front facing Mt. Pilchuck. That portion of the land is actually a plateau. From the road (on the south border) you ascend the driveway to the top of the plateau. The upper stretch of land will be cleaned up and used for pasture; eventually the front area that has been cleared will also be cleaned of all the logging debris and planted fresh as well. The middle band of forest is actual a slope. We’ll clean up the underbrush so that we don’t have any fire hazards and put some trails in there to train the llamas for hiking. This stretch of forest will also be a nice refuge for wood ducks (we’ll put up some wood duck boxes for them) as well as some other small birds like quail.
2005 Aerials: The second and third photos are just zoomed out a bit so you can glimpse the surrounding area and see the nearby river.
2006 Aerials: You can see the house, barn, pastures…
