Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Wildlife On The Mountain...

8:06 pm - 42 degrees - windy and raining...
It’s hard to believe that I’m writing about the holiday season in past tense already, where did 2013 go?  It feels like each year goes by faster than the year before.

Both kids are back in school, the holiday dust has settled, and life on the mountain has returned to our version of normal...which includes wildlife watching and we are in the perfect spot for it.

Living in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range there is an abundance of wildlife which we love to watch.  Some animals we see all the time; some we don't see other than the tracks and markings left behind; and some we only hear, somewhere off in the distance.

Here are some of the cute little critters and feathered friends on the mountain.
