This house on the edge of Lithia Park reminds me a bit of the one in the movie Coraline. That one is pink though.

Butte Creek Mill destroyed on Christmas morning

Back in 2011 I posted some photos of our visit to Butte Creek Mill. A few days ago, an early morning fire wiped out the place. Today I’m posting a few more images (two of the interior and one of the exterior) from 2011. The fire photo is from the internet.

The first mill was constructed here in 1872. Some things from the original mill still survived until Christmas of 2015. Additions and changes to the building took place between 1912 and the 1930s. The mill had been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1976. It’s all gone now. The current plan is to rebuild.

This summer you can watch movies at ScienceWorks outdoors every other Sunday evening. It’s sort of like a drive-in movie experience.

The Wood House

The Wood House, in Eagle Point, Oregon, turns 145 years old this year. I have never been inside. In fact, until a recent trip to hike near Crater Lake, I had never stopped even though it is right on the road. I paused for this photo because 1) I was by myself in the car for once and 2) the fog made the setting look extra good.

Fall

@SOUAshland

Friday was the last day of this year to catch this scene. The leaves were falling fast and furiously (as you can see if you look really closely at today’s photo; those are leaves in the air, not birds), and the weekend was a windy one.

Another from Ashland’s sister city

Yes, those are birds in cages in the windows upstairs. I could hear them from across a wide and busy street. It was only when I looked for where the sound was coming from that I saw the bearded man.

Subterránea Miguel Hidalgo

Subterránea Miguel Hidalgo guanajuato tunnels

Streets of Guanajuato, Mexico

Ashland and Guanajuato share a lot of things in common–art community, university town, valley nestled in mountains, large tourism industry, etc. One thing Guanajuato has that Ashland doesn’t (does any place other than Guanajuato have this?) are the underground roads. Guanajuato’s tunnels sometimes have daylight overhead like the portion of the road in today’s photo.

The tunnels were originally put in place to reduce flooding and a river of water (and sewage) ran through it until 50 years ago. A dam was then built and the previous water channel was converted into a road for vehicles and pedestrians.

Santa Barbara Courthouse

Santa Barbara County Courthouse during Christmas blue hour

Last week I posted a photo from the clock tower of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. Today’s photo is of the courthouse and the clock tower that prior picture came from.

The first night we pulled into Santa Barbara we were all rather stunned driving past this building which looked spectacular at night. During the day it still looked pretty cool, but at night is when it really dazzles. Every night I meant to walk down the street (we were staying near Santa Barbara High School) to get this shot, but it wasn’t until our final night–Christmas evening–that I actually made it happen.
