Mule Springs is an online journal about life on our farm in Columbia River Basin region of Oregon.
My husband, Bruce, and I recently moved to Oregon from Southeast Alaska — where we spent 16 years living in a cabin on the beach at the edge of a rainforest. In Southeast I taught Humanities courses for the University of Alaska and Bruce practiced orthopedic medicine. We trained bird dogs for field competitions, raised performance flying pigeons, and fished for salmon in the icy waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Our newest adventure encompasses the world of dry land farming, native plant restoration, old barn restoration, oriental roller pigeons, and training our miniature donkeys– Ziggy and Chippo.
