Home in the hills.

If you take Highway 30 out of Portland, you'll head to the north-west along the Columbia river. You'll pass Linnton, with its fish sign and electronic speed signs flashing accusatory amber numerals, and the beautiful St. Johns Bridge. Keep going, and eventually you'll get to Scappoose, and then Saint Helens.

Somewhere between Linnton and Scappoose, if you turn off to the left on one of the roads that lead up into the hills and then drive for 10 or 15 minutes, you'll get to where I live. The owners own two properties: the house across the street that they occupy (aka The High Castle), and the house that serves a guest house and business office (aka The Undisclosed Location), which is also where I live. And that's the house in these pictures.

I miss Portland, but I do like it here. It's nice to have a break from the hipster ghetto, with all the crowding and craziness that goes along with it. Here it's quiet, and I can see deer passing through the yard almost every day.
