Construction is nearing completion on the Tahoma High School in Maple Valley, WA. Students are scheduled to begin attending classes this Fall in their new facilities. Some of the athletic fields are already being used. The fields are very well laid out and should be great for the student athletes as well as the fans. I’ll most likely go back for more photos when the landscaping is finished. I thought it would be nice to have some aerial images while all is bright and new. (click on photos see larger versions.)
There was nice weather in the Pacific Northwest today, so I drove over to Auburn to check out the Neely Mansion. Volunteers have been keeping this beautiful historic building in great shape. The Neely Mansion Association was incorporated in 1983 and is an all volunteer group. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places. This fancy farmhouse was built in 1894. You can find out more about the mansion by visiting www.neelymansion.org or www.facebook.com/Neely-Mansion-Association-177484142383107/.
Two from their board were working on the gardening when I arrived. I took some aerial photos of the building and then some overheads of the grounds for them to use in their future planning. Check their websites – it is well worth a visit.
