Late May in Ashland

A cell phone pic from a bike ride I took last week. I wonder when the last time was that Mt. Ashland had this much snow on it on the last day of May?

Throwback Thursday

Hobart Bluff

With temperatures expected to reach the 90s by the end of the weekend, it’s a little hard to believe that today’s photo is from less than two weeks ago. Such is springtime in Ashland.

From 90 degrees to 30 degrees in 3 days

Hobart Bluff (May 6, 2017)

Last week was a wild week of weather in Ashland. It felt like summer early in the week, followed by one of the best rainbow/thunder/lightning storms I’ve ever encountered, and then Friday night it snowed in the mountains. We headed up to Hobart Bluff yesterday. We had to forge our own trail as no one else ventured out to Hobart on Saturday. With the wind-chill factor it was about 10-15 degrees when I took this photo. Only five more weeks until summer!

Good morning Ashland

April is Grizzly Peak‘s best month. Not only is green, but sometimes it has some snow on top. Today’s photo featured some nice lighting just before the sun went down on Friday.

Natural Bridge

Natural Bridge in the Rogue River

Today’s photo comes from my snowshoeing adventure a couple weekend’s ago. Although I’ve turned out at Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint on Highway 62 more than a dozen times over the years, I had never been to Natural Bridge Viewpoint before. The two are very close to each other, but Natural Bridge is a bit off the highway.

During winter you can’t get to the viewpoint via a car. That fact made this trek interesting for me. I was able to park in the normal turnout on Highway 62 even though the road (Rd 300 on Google maps) is not plowed. There was room for maybe three cars, but mine was the only one there on this day. From there I walked on snowshoes a little over half a mile to this location.

The Rogue River was higher than normal so the natural bridge in today’s photo isn’t that visible, but in person the scene was pretty spectacular. Water goes underground, through a lava tube, before exiting back into the Rogue River 250 feet downstream.

Another Ashland sunrise

This morning’s sunrise was a good one–peachy, rather than pink, for Valentine’s Day. This photo isn’t from this morning though. My random, desktop image of the day is from 2010.
