Prune Hill - What's in a Name? Some of the best views in Camas are from atop the cinder-cone of a now extinct volcano known as Prune Hill. The name dates back to 1900, and as its name implies, the slopes of the hill were once covered in Prune Orchards. At one time, Clark County was known as the prune capitol of te world and exported the fruit to multiple European ports. During the Great Depression, the market for prunes collapsed and most of the trees were put to better use – as firewood. For quite a few years, most of Prune Hill remained forested with only a few scattered residences.  But in 1971, with the addition of two new water reservoirs and sewer improvements, Prune Hill finally became “the place to live in Camas, Washington.” In large part, due to the stunning views of Mt. Hood,...

The Summit at Autumn Hills We enjoy selling and showing homes in The Summit at Autumn Hills neighborhood on Livingston Mountain. It's one of our favorite neighborhoods to call home in Camas. It's no wonder too. The Summit is surrounded by towering pines, alders, and wildlife. A true destination for the "Nature as Neighbors™" lifestyle. Residents claim they get more days of sunshine, thanks to the higher elevation. And if you're dreaming of a White Christmas, this neighborhood has a far greater chance of seeing that happen. While we can't guarantee it, three Christmas' out of last three years did have measurable snow on the ground.  The gated community is comprised of custom-homes on large 5-acre parcels, many with stunning views of the valley, mountains, and Portland city lights. The Su...

One of our favorite trails in the Camas area is Lacamas Heritage Trail. The path is lined with towering evergreens, deciduous trees, and plenty of underbrush as it winds its way along Lacamas Creek and Lacamas Lake. The views are ever-changing too, depending upon the time of day, weather, or the season. It's a great trail for spotting wildlife. We've seen everything from deer to bobcats, geese, and great blue heron. The sightings add to the enjoyable experience of connecting with Nature. And by now, we all know how beneficial it is to take some time outdoors to soak up soothing views. It's good for what ails you.  We tend to use to the trail for exercise, therefore, we either run or walk it at a fast pace. Our white Golden Retriever, Mac is usually with us too. There are doggy bag dispe...

 Snow starting falling at our Camas home on Christmas Eve. It was a welcome sight- and we did indeed get the White Christmas we'd both hoped for. Today on December 26th, there is still a frozen layer of ice and snow on the ground. It's not only making it tough for commuters, but area wildlife are in survival mode.  Snow is generally a rarity in our region of the Pacific Northwest, but we do tend to get a few days of frozen something each year. When the temperatures drop, we always worry about the resident Anna's hummingbird population. These little jewels winter over, and rely on the insect population and unfrozen feeders to survive.  We make sure the sugar water in our feeder doesn't freeze, and even have one with a light bulb that keeps the nectar warm. One little guy has been spendin...

Happy Fall!It's the perfect time of year to do random acts of kindness. It can be as simple as holding the door to helping an elderly neighbor prep their yard for the winter months to come. Need help coming up with a few ideas? Stop by our library and pick up a list! Click on the link below for more information. Before you head downtown to pick up that list, go through your closet and grab those gently used jackets that no longer fit. Someone out there needs that jacket! http://www.ci.camas.wa.us/images/LIBRARY/AdultFlyers/KindnessFlyer.jpg
