I am standing on Brown Road taking this picture of our North property line. The heavy tree line in the distance
is our North property line. Timber companies own the land on three sides of our property.
They recently logged off the land in the foreground. The property owner on the fourth side of our property is
raising timber also and has no home on that property.
There are no homes on the properties on all four sides of our property so the closest neighbors are 1/2 mile to the East and 1/2 mile to
the West of our property.
The property also has a spring that provides water for the pond that will be described later on.
The ground itself is a sandy loam soil which will grow nearly anything that you might want to plant on it.
Every few days it will rain a small amount during the summer. This makes it possible for you to take a trip and
not need to worry about watering your lawn or garden.
Those occasional rains are beneficial and not the wet dreary type of climate that you find in Western Oregon and Washington.
About three feet below the sandy loam soil is a red sandy clay soil. There are no rocks on the property.
If you want to be tucked away in the forest and have the feeling that you are hundreds of miles from civilization, then this is the
place for you.
It is five miles from town but you will feel like you are many miles from civilization.
