Talus trees

The trees are the view;  enjoy them

If I could take a moment to remind those that buy homes in Issaquah… the trees are the view! We are so fortunate to live within a tall urban forest and it should be celebrated not demolished. Please, everyone, look out your window and be grateful that we have so many beautiful, oxygen-producing, soil-protecting, wildlife-sustaining evergreens all around our fine city!
