Fun night for a good cause last night at Hilltop Music Shop in Phoenix. Almost $3,000 was raised, and everyone had a blast.

Yountville

Vineyard replanting

We took a little road trip down south this past weekend. We spent most of our time in Napa but headed out one morning for a walk in Yountville.

100 Watt Mind @ Johnny B’s

A little over 5 years after seeing 100 Watt Mind at old Johnny B’s, I saw them at new Johnny B’s a couple weeks ago.

Cambrian Explosion @ Johnny B’s

It’s been a while since I’ve made it out for live music. With Club 66 and Musichead both out of business, rare visits to Britt or the Ashland Armory are all that I seem to get to these days in the Rogue Valley. I swore off Johnny B’s a few years ago, but I made a rare exception a couple weeks ago when Cambrian Explosion and 100 Watt Mind were playing. Both bands were great.

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.

Buck Prairie

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.

Baskery

Britt Festival Baskery

Baskery is opening for the Foo Fighters in May at the BottleRock Napa Festival in California. I may be checking out the Foo Fighters at Roskilde Festival the following month. I say may because I’m teaching Friday of the festival and may not make it to Roskilde on that night. If Neurosis is going on Friday evening I will be there though.

Haven’t seen these guys for over four years. Looks like they’ve merged with Into the Open Earth.
