      Truly. I was lucky enough to buy property before the big boom of the 90s. Each day is glorious. And I discover new things.

      Glad you enjoyed the tour.

        and appreciate this tour, thank you very much.

        It's amazing that this short personal diary actually makes me feel more comfortable with the place instead of a remoteness..or something..anyway, thanks very much!

        Your picture of the Cedar reminds me of the tour in the woods with my late friend up there, a few miles south of Milly on the OP...she has woods and in it was a Cedar right next to a Doug Fir...and they had branches grown thru each others trunks, and they were bigger branches than nearby branches that hadn't grown thru...even have pictures somewhere of it...

        (RIP Barbara dear one, you were a good good one, and you are missed!)  ahhh....

          It's hard to convey a place, but when readers have experienced something like it, it does resonate. I can tell you love wildlife and can slip yourself into their diving, swimming, flying, cackling, munching world where you are. As much as a human can of course.

          Trees have stories too. I loved the Ents in LOTR. Tolkien was able to convey a bit the pace of their existence, and what was important to them. Their experience of time passing is so completely different from ours, we forget they're not just inanimate dumb objects. How sweet the mingling of the cedar and fir you saw with your friend. A life story there for sure.
