Hope and I arrived in Mossyrock right about a year and a half ago. Mossyrock is located 20 miles east of I-5 on Highway 12 between Vancouver and Olympia. Highway 12 is one of the passes over the Cascade Mountains connecting western Washington with eastern Washington, and we are the foothills of those mountains. We are a town of about 600-700 people. We are right down the road from lots of logging, with mills in Morton, Randle and Packwood. We are a farming community, with a long history of dairy farming in the area. It is a beautiful area with two dams and lakes, great fishing, lots of parks and woods for hiking, camping and generally any outdoor activities your heart desires.
