Best Ice Cream on the Planet: Shelton's Olympic Mountain Ice Cream - 10/20/07 12:44 AM
I was just visiting the Wagner Team's blog andreading through their Best of 2007 post and noticed the teensiest, tiniest error: They claimed some place in Colorado has the best ice cream ever. Not Possible! Not at all even close to possible. Because I know the best ice cream in the world is from a little family owned place in Western Washington, near me. So that is obviously wrong. Olympic Mountain Ice Cream, from Shelton Washington makes the most amazing ice cream and sorbet. How good? They are so good, they won't even make Peach Sorbet until the peaches are ripe.They are so good, they (20 comments)

For those of us lucky enough to live in Thurston County, we already know what a beautiful place we have chosen. But we can always want more, and TRPC has responded to that yearning by developing a plan to increase our regional trails and trail system, and make improvements to the parts that already exist. The Thurston Regional Planning Commission (TRPC) has recently released its 'vision' for trails throughout Thurston County. The Thurston Regional Trails Plan includes details about the 27 different trail segments, which total (3 comments)
This is a work in progress- I am a 9+ year veteran of the local real estate market, but am taking a break from licensed work as I go back to school. I am not sure how to describe myself at the moment... but I will be sure to keep sharing about the little gems the area has to offer. I am sure my perspective will change as I take this step back from the very immersive world of real estate.
