Property outside Raymond, Washington

20130311-203053.jpg

This property was about 2+ hours away and just at the outer edge of where we’d be willing to buy. 14 acres and surrounded by public land.

We first had to hike through federal land and realized once we got to the river that there was no way to easily cross to get to the actual property. We had to walk upstream to find a way to get over. Piles of felled trees were the only real way over and it took a long time to navigate and was exciting but also stressful b/c the kiddo and I were wearing slippery shoes and hadn’t been prepared for crawling over mossy, slippery logs to cross the river. We heard that current owners would readily build a bridge for someone purchasing the land (at a mere $15K) and I guess we’d get an easement for road access? The property was absolutely breathtaking and amazing but were in early days and this would be a big project just to build access – much less build a house.
Really special place though.
