Location: The Oregon Cascades, near PDX, United States

Our home in the Oregon Cascades, provides us with peaceful days, and star-filled nights. We are grateful for fresh air, clean water, and enough space for our garden.

Sculpture at Caracol. You can see the sculpture at the lower left of this small temple, and then click on the the close-ups below!

Two stelae markers on either side of the plaza would line up with the rising sun during the winter and summer equinoxes. Trenching through the center of the buildings has exposed earlier versions of the temple from before 300 BC, the earliest Preclassic period.
