- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
On the "East vs West" divide. I come from family who ranched in Central Oregon, - Ashwood. My grandfather whose father homesteaded the land in the 1800's made a point of NOT killing animals he wasn't hunting for food (well, other than rattle snakes I guess) because he understood that nature kept it's own balance. He knew that "private property" is an invented notion that has meaning only for the people that live there but plants and native animals species don't give a hoot about divisions of private property, they live their lives as they best live there lives and to quote a friend it's best to "give it a good leave it alone".
There are many from the east who are interested in a compassionate and informed way of living in support of healthy eco-systems.
