Forest Meditation Trails and Native Plant Species: The shorter 10 minute "Deer Trail" veers to the right into a pristine gathering of undisturbed, old growth Douglas firs. The longer 25 minute "Elk Trail" forks to the left along the old logging road to a secret creek and magnificent cedar grove rest area, mostly like where the herds sleep. Discover hundreds of Pacific Northwest wildflowers, herbs, berries and mushrooms with our native plant guidebooks. Please only take samples in areas of abundant groups to insure continued sustainability for future generations.
Natural Aviary & Magical Animal Visitations: Our hillside, three-level retreat home has 1200 square feet of decking ideal for observing and enjoying the songs of multiple bird communities that inhabit the 100+ foot fir trees. Identify jays, sparrows, woodpeckers and eagles among many others with our National Audubon Society Sibley Guide to Birds as they fly below you. A family of gentle deer, rabbits, squirrels, and a herd of magnificent elk also make an appearance at very auspicious times.
Secluded Location for Silent Sunrises, Sunsets, and Starlit Skies: Our peaceful hilltop presence on 10 acres of national protected forestland is perfect for meditating to these spectacular daily events. The summer night sky for astronomy hobbies is especially remarkable.
