Clark’s Grebes

Clark's Grebes

You can find dozens of Clark’s Grebes in Upper Klamath Lake this time of year. However, most of the mating rituals happen soon after they arrive in late April so it’s a little late to see much activity. Putnam’s Point is a good place to park and watch.

Here is a pretty cool video (especially after the 50 second mark).

One year ago today…

Spring Snow

If April showers bring May flowers, what do April snows bring?

We went for a hike on Wagner Butte on Saturday, expecting rain but receiving snow. Snow, instead of rain, was far more comfortable on this 10-mile hiking adventure.

I’ve done this trail before in sunny weather. Directions can be found here. Note that the bullet-ridden sign (top image in link) is no longer there so don’t be looking for it.

My random, desktop image of the day comes from a hike I took just over two years ago. I nearly died that day. Good memories.

My random, desktop image of the day is this one from a little over two years ago.

If the trees look fuzzy in today’s photo, it’s because it was raining (despite the blue sky in the background).

About two hours from Ashland, and not far from Crater Lake, is the trail to Toketee Falls. The trail to the falls offers views like the above.

Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint

Rogue River Gorge

On our way back from Crater Lake a couple weeks ago we stopped at the Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint where I took this photo. The parking lot is covered in snow this time of year so if you want to see the gorge you’ll want a good pair of shoes on so you can walk through a bit of snow to get to the paved trail. Park near Beckie’s Cafe.
