I was out there yesterday. Here is my brother and his family. They might come out and settle in on a couple of acres. They have cattle, pigs, chickens, goats and, I think, a horse.

Note the thick trees.

One pic is of the dried up creek. After a heavy snow, and then fast melt combined with heavy rain - still dry. I'll fix that.

Thanks for the pictures Paul ! Looks awesome. When you get going someone will have to start, and keep up, a projects thread in the projects forum.

TL doesn't know it yet, but she's fixing to sing! Paul, you look at peace except for the thousand ideals flowing through your head.
 
Can you really tell me that we aren't dealing with suspicious baked goods? And then there is this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
