Take me out to the ballgame…

Harry & David Field

Schedule for the Medford Rogues can be found here.

Oldest continuous ballpark in the nation

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field

@OregonState @BeaverBaseball

Even older than Fenway Park (1912) and Wrigley Field (1914), baseball has been played at the site of Goss Stadium (which has seen many improvements over the years) since 1907. It only took me 110 years to see my first game there this past weekend. The game (against Washington State) was sold out so we had to procure tickets from a scalper outside the stadium (for about half of what tickets were going for on Stubhub but still more than double the face value).

The #1-ranked Beavers won, as usual. OSU will be hosting the Regionals next weekend. If all goes well, they will be hosting the Super Regionals the following weekend and heading to Omaha for the College World Series later in June.

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!

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.

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.

This isn’t what the Southern Oregon University campus looks like today, but it sure feels like this (as it’s been in the 20s all morning).
