High above the spectacular Methow Valley of north central WA sits a magical place by the creek under the watch of Lookout Mountain. I'm in the process of creating gardens & a home orchard while trying to grow extra food for the local food bank. I have future aspirations of livestock & poultry. I'm looking for a few good men, women & unbinary gender peeps to camp, garden, hike, mitigate fire fuels & be merry!

BYOF: while I am more than happy to share the harvest when available, I am not able to otherwise provide food at this juncture (not that I don't want to). However, there's lots of space to camp (fire safe only) with running water (both creek & well), including winter camping & potential (no dump) RV space. There are also many trails very close by & the land is bordered by Forest E & W.

Right now, the most urgent projects include fire mitigation including creating defensible space (essentially fire lines) & brush removal while maintaining winter browse for deer, elk, et al. I would entertain your presence in exchange for help with sustainable forestry (thinning unhealthy trees, not logging), as well as any donations, whether material or monetary for the procurement of livestock/poultry. This is a stunning place which I would love to share with some like minded LGBTQASU peeps (BTW: ASU = Asexual, Straight & Unbinary, LOL!)...I didn't want to leave anyone out! Host (yours truly) graduated from a year long Wilderness Education & Ecology program...I'm happy to share the knowledge! Thanks

Hello Terry!

That is an intriguing photograph. It looks a bit like an old fire look out, only not tall (or sturdy!) enough.... which leads me to think it's a tree house for the treeless! Or just a highrise for maximum views at dawn... did you put it up yourself?
