Cabin in the Northwest

Before I moved to Colorado, I somewhat seriously considered moving to Seattle. While it seemed like a beautiful city, it was the lush countryside that really inspired me. It was the threat of rain that kept me away (I remember weeks of rain and a huge flood in the news after my visit). Here in Colorado, we have 300+ days of bright sun a year and I love it. But I DO miss tree canopies and lush ground cover. And moist air. If I'd lived in Seattle (and garnered some high-power position) I'd surely have this very cabin in these very woods!

These are amazing. Yes, the rain would be the clincher. I had a friend who wanted to move there for 15 years. When her kids were grown, she and her husband picked up and took the leap. It lasted 7 months as she thought she was going to drown! Not quite the same as summer vacations!
