Utah today... At right is what our FJ looked like at 9 am this morning. Note the snow on the picnic table and footbridge in the background toward the left. It continued to snow on and off all day long.
The view out of our cabin window looks a bit like a Currier & Ives winter print. As I write this, the hillside opposite us has a small herd of deer on it, browsing the shrubs for forage.
We've located a home that we like a lot, but it would take a bit of work to make the grounds as we want them. We're working with a great local realtor now to see if we can put all the pieces together to get ourselves a little homestead – and if we manage it, our future address will be in Paradise, Utah. If things work out right, we'll have about 15 acres of land, with trees to screen us from our neighbors, a pond, and plenty of irrigation water.
The people here have been wonderful, like most of the rest of our Utah experiences. We're not surprised by this, but it's comforting to be able to confirm it...
