Nolemana and I had an appraisal to do in daboonies of Washougal, Washington yesterday. I always enjoy our boonies drives, and this one was no exception.
Getting around Clark County is quite a challenge, even with TryLook, our GPS. Many, if not most of the streets and roads are numbered, and keep changing depending on the direction you’re going. Some of the streets are really just rutted, graveled roads with room enough for only one car.
But despite that, along the way we saw some wonderful sights, including this incredibly cute horse. I think it must be her tiny ears that makes her so cute.
This was a good road along the Washougal River.
We saw this neat barn near the road.
The Washougal River. We crossed it several times during the day.
I loved the waterfall here.
But the water looked VERY cold!
In the summer when the trees are leafed out, the river wouldn’t be this visible.
Oh my gosh. This guy in the rowboat was getting no where. We watched him for quite awhile, driving by really slowly, and he just kept rowing. He didn’t seem to be too concerned that the only thing he was doing was not floating down the river. He was exerting a lot of energy, that’s for sure, but he never advanced even a foot. I admired his persistence!
Another river shot.

Crossing over the river, going up Vernon Road.
We climbed up into daboonies and at the curve of one road saw these signs. Wassap wit dat?
View from dat corner:
Then back down and over the river we went again.
We saw another cool barn.
Back up in daboonies again. It’s amazing to me how people build their fancy kine houses up here; it takes a good long time to get to any major employment areas from here, and I expect that when it snows it’s pretty hard getting out. But the amazing thing is that the fancy houses could be right next door to some not so fancy houses, making the fancy ones an over-improvement for the neighborhood. (Fancy-kine appraisal term. LOL.)
Nothing wrong wit dat hale, but the contrast was interesting.
K’den. More tomorrow. Or later. Or Hawaiian time.
