A Special Aerial Photo Treat!

Before…and After…views of the ranch from the sky.

The Snohomish County website just recently updated its aerial imagery and we can now see the changes from 2005 to 2007.

Shaped like a trapezoid (you can see the yellow property lines outlining it), our ranch is 17 acres. It is divided into 3 sections: The upper Northwest plateau (house, barn, and upper pastures), The Middle Forest on a hillside and seasonal stream, The Front Southeast Triangle (roadside).

Mountain Loop Hwy is our southern boundary.  The entrance to the ranch is located at the lower left corner of (southwest) of the property. The driveway curves up and heads to the northern boundary, then turns left and continues to the Northwest corner and turns right (north) up towards our back entrance off of Green Mountain Road (which can be seen as the small curve in the upper left corner of the 2007 close-up).   At the bottom of the photos, across the Mountain Loop Hwy from us, you can see the bow in the South Fork Stillaguamish River; that’s only a small piece of it, but the beach is where kayakers like to put in.

(If I did this correctly, you should be able to click the photos for a larger view)

In 2005, there were stump piles

In 2007, there is a house, a barn, life!

    Hi, David!
    How is everything going up at the ranch for you all? Love the Aerial photo\’s! The stream at the back of your property looks quite large but it is seasonal, so in the Winter there is no water in the stream, I guess! Your welcome here for sure my friends, if you are ever up this way. Have a great week-end, take care,
