Mountain View Living

We live where the Cascade Range spills out onto the high desert of Central Oregon. Our collection of Web sites chronicles our journey - from cancer, to a more healthful lifestyle, to establishing a non-profit with the mission of education and outreach to families dealing with this disease.

We are Gary and Marlys Johnson.
