The view from here. And there.

What is it about the perspective of the landscape from a high place that is so captivating?
We actually saw porpoises this day.  Off the Oregon Coast - a rare site indeed.

Our ideal town.  
Don't be surprised if you find us here again in the future.

Even cramped on a plane next to infants, who are apparently always hungry, grabbing, producing foul odors, on the verge of dying (based on their blood curdling screams), we can't escape the sunset.... 
Thank you tiny window of sanity.


Almost all of our owl surveying takes place in areas just like this. ---We'll just leave the images of logged areas for your imagination--- However, capturing a picture without a brown patch of clear cut is difficult :( 

On a happy note, finding a Spotted Owl = no logging in that area.

Hi just found you from blog hop, from your photos you seem to have a good life style. I'll keep track of what you get up to.
Jan and of course George.

Beautiful pictures. I think when we're up high and can really see things, we feel so very small and that's helpful in putting the grandeur of the scenery into perspective.

Visiting via the Welcome Wednesday blog hop.
What fabulous pictures! I think I recognize that rocky coastline from a trip out there years ago. It was a great place! My husband and I thought we should call home and have our stuff sent out and never go back!

Hi Owl People!

Thanks for stopping by! I have an Owl family just outside the bedroom window. They are pretty shy, but super noisy at night. Party On Night Owls!!

Washington/Oregon is my dream location. Your pics aren't making it any easier to be in Michigan. The temperature differential is tempting too.

Love this post - where exactly was it in Oregon? We vacation along the coast there every year and pre-kids made a point to hike or summit nearly every mountain peak in Washington. It is truly amazing land here. I love that you are embracing the remote locations - it's hard work getting to them! But it keeps them immaculate. Thanks for being stewards of our wilderness. :)
