Lo: used to call attention or to express wonder or surprise
Tahoma: Name for mt. rainier as it was known by the Northwest Native Americans
Lo Tahoma is an 18 acre homestead of diverse land including 15 forested acres, we're only 5 miles from the
NW entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park and only a 1/4 mile walk to the glacier fed Carbon River.
We mill our own lumber from trees off our property using a portable sawmill which provides us with the wood we need for most of our construction and repair projects.
We like to share self-sustainable knowledge and skills that we have found very useful on our homestead by offering small, hands-on, intimate classes, including:
How to make your own Soap, Yogurt, Sauerkraut & Non-toxic Homemade Household Cleaners,
Foraging for Nettles and how to use them, Keeping Chickens, Gardening & Composting.
We are excited to offer our first Campsite to the public! We've always wanted to share our property with others, public campsites are hard to find in the Carbon Canyon, we think you'll like the privacy, location and close proximity to
Mt. Rainier National Park from Lo Tahoma, we'll provide the tent pad, picnic table, wood rounds to sit on, a fire pit,
firewood, privy, non-potable water, and critter proof box to store your food.
Once you cross the O'Farrell bridge you're on Canyon time, literally unplug yourself from technology
*(no cell phone reception @ Lo Tahoma) and plug into Nature, walk away from the stresses of the world while immersing yourself in the natural world around you; there are 1000's of acres to explore.
