I live out in the forests of the Columbia River Gorge with three good cats and a lovely old Border Collie, Bell. I really enjoy exploring new things.Some of my most enjoyable evenings are spent entertaining friends over dinner. I can spend countless hours poking around back roads. I love being on the digging end of a shovel in my garden and bouncing across my rugged lawn on the mower. Metal detecting is great fun as there are lots of odds and ends to uncover. I am content to be hiking/tracking in the forest and expanding my connections to nature. I am currently exploring higher levels of photography, including macro work. I like to tinker with my G-scale garden railroad. I get great satisfaction out of local volunteer work. I welcome winter as a time for reading by the fire, and making comfort food like stews and pots o' beans.
