La Conner Farm, Washington

This farm has been owned by the same family for generations. The buildings are over 100 years old. The closest one was a grainery, in the distance is a hen house and horse barn. They have a rugged beauty ... soon to be upgraded ... foundation and roof repairs.

The farm is located near a salt water channel. Fresh water channels lace through it and around forested hills.

The farm is still actively growing vegetables.

We hiked a portion, with beautiful views. Dykes protect the farmlands.

Horses graze in a landscape that has changed little in 100 years!

Dragonflies swoop and land in the summer heat.

The arbutus tree is unique in that it sheds its bark, not it's leaves and once every few years is heavy with red berries.
