Where I Live


This is off the subject of all the details of my house it's self, but I thought some of you might enjoy a few shots from the general area where my house is parked. I really do love living here! This is a random collection of some of my favorite shots I've accumulated over a few years, all from pretty close to my house. Merry Christmas.

  2. What breaktaking, beautiful photos! You are living in such an amazing place. I'm living in a really ugly city. I guess the only advantages I'm seeing to city living right now are access to medical care and nearby groceries. But to be able to see so many beautiful things every day! And your tiny home is wonderful!

    1. There are a lot of things that are more handy I am sure when one does not live in such a remote location. I always laugh when someone tells me I should just find something at Walmart because the closest one for me is 90 miles and two mountain passes away. In the next state. ;) But despite the inconveniences, I do love it here and really enjoy backpacking, bouldering, skiing, and all that stuff that is much more accessible here than in a large city. Not everyone would like it though I know.

  4. What kind of vehicle do you drive to move your house? I was thinking a 1 ton with a camper shell for storing a supply of canned/dry food and dry storage would be an ideal way to keep the house from clutter.

    1. Well I don't really move it. If I need to I will have to rent or borrow a truck. I do drive an Astro van which I do use as a everyday vehicle, a camper van, and extra storage/garage space. And it's pretty amazing for all those things. And since the last owner had it lifted and put really nice tires on it, I can also drive through any kind of winter weather we have here. So I love my van, but while I can tow thing with it, it's not quite big enough to pull my house.

    1. Artist reference as in to paint from or something similar? No I have never done that but I guess I could. Where abouts in the world are you? Would you need a physical CD or would a digital copy work?

  8. Your photography is stunning and soul soothing you live in a magical place. I live in a city and try to escape into the woods or to the ocean every chance I get, it heals me.

  9. Wow!
    Photo #37 - what kind of birds are they? Just after the grizzly (?) bear? And the wolf (?) is wearing a collar? Tracking?
    Just stumbled across your blog from the latest Tumbleweed newsletter and am staying up far too late, fascinated by your life. I live in a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The furthest west I've been is Pincher Creek, Alberta, Canada while working but oh boy 45 years ago took the train across Canada with my best friend. I am sherrykenwood@hotmail.com

    1. They are sandhill cranes, also called whooping cranes. And yes that is a grizzly. Also correct on the wolf, I took that photo in the wild, but he does have a tracking collar. And thanks!

  10. I live in CO & have never seen an RV that can go thru the winter without freezing & breaking the plumbing. How do you keep yours from freezing.

    1. My water tank is all internal like most RVs. I have stick built walls with R-20 insulation however which is unlike a normal RV. I have a propane heater which does a great job of keeping the whole little space warm. And just in case, there is a single heat light in the same corner as the tank that I can turn on if it's really cold. I had a solid week of temps in the -20 range this past winter though and I had no issues. All the plumbing is within a few feet of the tank as well, so the heat and good insulation work for keeping it warm as well.
