Grizzly Peak in April

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.

Wild Turkeys

We had a flock of about ten wild turkeys hanging out in our backyard yesterday. Today’s photo shows most of them. They were bigger than other turkeys we’ve had before.

Buck Prairie

I enjoyed a lovely morning up on Buck Prairie yesterday. Snow had fallen overnight, the sun had come out, and the surface in the sunny areas seemed like it was covered in tiny diamonds. I was the first in snowshoes for the day. I was about the fourth car there. When I left, before noon, the parking lot off Dead Indian Memorial Road was packed.
