A View From the Coop

Today was such a beautiful Oregon day. A little chilly, but the sun was out. After a good, but long day at work this is what I came home to...


This is the view of Mt. Hood from my front porch...

That view of Mt Hood is incredible. I grew up in Hood River and Mt Hood is always amazing. Your setting is beautiful.

when my sister lived there she would send me pictures of mt hood...she lived in west linn...(i think that's what it was called)
It always looked so beautiful but very very cold...
your house is stunning...
I love seeing picture of the american landscape...it is so different to ours...
the red barns the houses,even street scenes...things that seem so ordinary to you are so very quirky and interesting to us...

Breathtakingly beautiful! I love living right here in Oregon City and enjoy that mountain from almost everywhere in the greater Portland area, but oh, your front porch view is truly divine. Your entire setting is beautiful.

Hi, Laurie!
So nice to put a "living face" with a name today! We had a great time and didn't mind the sprinkles.

Question - is the "secret sale" open to the public? Is there a site about the sale?

Thanks so much!
Betty :)

You must live a lot closer to Mt Hood then I did cuz it never looked that big to me! I lived in Gresham for a few years. What a beautiful view you have...amazingly beautiful! How Blessed you are to wake up to that every morning. =O)
