Homes With Views in Felida, WAFelida is a town in Clark County, WA that lies northwest of downtown Vancouver along the Columbia River.  It's name has an interesting history. Once a quiet farming community, with older homes on large lots and acreage, it is evolving as a bustling community with many new subdivisions.  Most new houses these days are on smaller lots due to environmental, zoning, and economic considerations, but a few exceptions can be found.  Many of the homes in Felida feature views of Vancouver Lake,The Columbia River, Salmon Creek, or peaceful territorial vistas.Felida Features the Salmon Creek Greenway TrailEven with all the development in the area, Felida still enjoys a natural, verdant environment.

We enjoy visiting the Clark County community known as Felida. Its name has an interesting story too. When the Post Office was established in 1890, the name Powley was submitted to honor an area resident. The name was denied, but the Post Office suggested instead, "Polly." The postmaster thought the name sounded like a parrot and remarked, "they might as well name the post office after my cat." Therefore, he submitted "Thomas," the cat's name, as well as, "Tomcat, and "Felidae," Latin for big cats. Felida was approved!Felida, long known for its pastoral settings, is changing because many of the area's farms were purchased by developers in recent years. Therefore, farmlands have been replaced with large subdivisions. Homes on larger parcels are generally resale, as most builders tend to m...

When Running Outside in the Rain Beats Working-Out at the Gym... This is an update to my ActiveRain Old Farts Club Fitness challenge for 2017.  My primary fitness activity is Running; it gets me Outdoors, and provides a relatively inexpensive way to obtain good aerobic conditioning.  Through the years the Winter season has the most difficult because of the weather conditions - moisture and low-temperature,  to keep on schedule. Running on the Salmon Creek Trail, there are at least two types of flooding that can keep a person off the trail, and looking for another running trail or venue.  One type of flood is when Salmon Creek itself becomes swollen with rainwater and/or snow-melt/runoff.  This type of flood will easily keep a person off the trail as the swiftness of the current can be ...

Alt-Title: Nature's Handiwork Best Seen at Dawn on a Foggy Morning Adventure The popular trail recently freed from a heavy snowfall, seems normal enough ... ...yet rounding the bend, with the light just right you can see "new construction" from the arachnid world. Not many flying insects active in the near-freezing air, but the droplets of fog are easily snared. How industrious these web-weavers must be to produce such large webs in the winter season! The morning hours are a great time to get out in Vancouver Washington, most any time of the year to explore and admire the beauty of the natural world.  PS - 2017 real estate market will be hot for Vancouver WA.  If you ace planning on Selling or, just want to know what your home is worth -  we offer a no-cost, no-obligation Comparative M...

We enjoy visiting the Clark County community known as Felida, just north of Vancouver, WA. Its name has an interesting story too. When the Post Office was established in 1890, the name Powley was submitted to honor an area resident. The name was denied, but the Post Office suggested instead, "Polly." The postmaster thought the name sounded like a parrot and remarked, "they might as well name the post office after my cat." Therefore, he submitted "Thomas," the cat's name, as well as, "Tomcat, and "Felidae," Latin for big cats. Felida was approved!Points of Interest: You can access the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail from the Felida bridge at NW 36th Avenue. The trail offers a scenic natural getaway in northern Vancouver. Paved, tree-lined trails wind along the creek and through wetlands for ...
