Our Ranch in Eastern Oregon
Our main residence is in the thickly wooded, tall timbered lands of Western
Wahington but we also love wide open country. So about 20 years ago we
purchased a sage covered high desert ranch located at the foothills of the
majestic Blue Mountains in Eastern Oregon. It is loaded with various wildlife,
magnificent scenery and night skies filled with millions of bright stars. It is
our "get away from it all", and we look forward to coming over as often as
possible to this quiet, peaceful place where traffic jams and time tables are

The rangeland consists varieties of native, wild bunchgrasses in sagebrush covered draws, CRP fields and rock outcroppings. It is home to many species of wildlife.

Havesting the alfalfa..... We are all automated now. After baling we push the hay bales into groups of eight by using forks on the front of our four wheelers. The
bales are then picked up by a grapple on the tractor and loaded onto the flatbed. No wrestling bales by hand anymore.

rescued it before it got injured by the
mower. It was reunited with its mother &
