2014 US Rowing Northwest Junior Regional Championships

2014 Ashland Tri Regatta

I’m heading up to Vancouver Lake in Washington today to catch the end of the NW Junior Regional Rowing Championships. I probably won’t see much. Crew isn’t much of a spectator sport unless you get to be in a boat. I’ll be going more to bring kids back to Ashland tomorrow.

Besides the Junior Crew of the Ashland Rowing Club, teams from Humboldt and South Eugene competed on a cold and sometimes wet morning this morning.

After living in Ashland for nearly 14 years, I thought I had been on every nearby hike. Turns out I was wrong. Hobart Peak (AKA Hobart Bluff) is more of a walk than a hike as it isn’t long (about 3 miles round trip) and only has a bit of elevation gain near the end. The sky was completely blue on the day we went. I want to go again for a sunrise or sunset or between storms.

If you are in Ashland and want to check it out, get on Highway 66 toward the Green Springs. After a little less than 15 miles from Oak Tree Northwest Bar & Grill, turn right onto Soda Mountain Road. In about 3.5 miles park at the trail marker near a meadow. You’ll be on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) initially. A sign a mile in will direct you to the left to get to the location in today’s photo.
