Skagit County still has
 lots of open, rural real estate prperties and lower home prices than down I-5. And when the sun shines, we have the most wonderful blue water views of Puget Sound. Heading north through Mount Vernon the North Cascades Highway travels through
Sedro-Woolley to Wenatchee, and heads to Eastern Washington where the land is know for it's spectacular wide valley farms, and riverfront acreage. Fabulous hiking is just a side step off the highway along the Cascade Crest Trail. The pristine North Cascade National Parks and Cascade Mountains are a great nearby get-a-way.

Your family will love these rural wooded areas, the untouched quality of life. Let's lose that stress! Your pace should slow down for awhile! The Skagit River Valley is still a land of well-tended rural farms untouched by urbanization. You will love the mild weather, and fabulous mountain views. 
Ideal land parcels with enough room to include a home for extended family members are just waiting for your plans.
