Today’s photo comes from a hike on a trail called Amanda’s Trail near Yachats, Oregon in November of 2016.

East Applegate Ridge Trail

Yesterday we discovered a new trail less than 40 minutes from Ashland. The trail isn’t actually new, but it’s rare that we stumble upon a new trail to us after living in Southern Oregon for 20 years. The trail is a little over 10-miles out and back or five miles if you leave a car at one end. There is a parking lot at each end, although some trail descriptions say there is no parking on the west side. That parking lot (difficult to find as there are no signs on Highway 238 near Ruch) is relatively new.

Turkey sex

We had about 10 female turkeys prance through our back yard a couple days ago. They were followed by two males who started a mating ritual which drew one of the females back. What followed was an interesting five minutes or so which included a feathery head massage before they got down to business.

Snow in the Siskiyous

Sunny with temps hitting the 60s today, followed by snow tomorrow night. Such is the weather in Ashland in March.

Oregon Coast

Bandon

Today’s photo comes from a quick trip to the coast eight years ago. I don’t think I’ve been back to Bandon since.

Wizard Island without the water

Red Cone near Crater Lake

@CraterLakeNPS #CraterLake

On my bike ride around Crater Lake last September I spotted this formation known as Red Cone on the northwest side of the lake. Looking at this to my left, with Wizard Island in the middle of the lake to my right, made me think I was looking at twins–this one in bed with the other in the bath tub.
