For those of you who don't know I have spent my whole life in the desert. Yes Washington state has a desert, a pretty big one actually but no one ever really visits. It's nice in its way but I have always wanted to live somewhere green and preferably in the mountains. I love to be in the mountains and forage for berries, mushrooms, fish, hunt, and camp. Unfortunately in every place we have lived we were hours away from any mountains for recreation. But now we are literally at the foot of the wallowa and blue mountains. Every morning I wake up and see snow capped peaks and every day I take my children for a long walk next to the Powder River and marvel and all the natural beauty.

We have already gone fishing and I am scoping out areas for berry picking as the most delicious wild berry grows here! The huckleberry! I cant wait to pick them for pies, jams, and syrups.
I have a great book on wild berries and mushrooms and I am spending my time on learning identification.
We are living in a cute little house with a nice fenced yard only three blocks from my husbands new work so no more two hour commute and all the expense that went with it. So far I love our new town and the people we have met, I miss my garden and fruit trees and our old church family but I know God has great things in store for us here.
