Castle Crags

Castle Crags Dome Hike

Another shot (actually this is a photomerge of seven photos) from the Castle Crags Dome Hike I did a couple weeks ago.

About an hour and half drive south of Ashland on I-5 will put you in Castle Crags State Park. There are several hikes to choose from; we did Castle Dome and Indian Springs which total about 6 miles. That may not sound like much, but with over 2,200 feet of elevation gain (and, of course, decent as well) this is a strenuous hike. The views are totally worth it though.

Indian Springs is probably skipped by most, but I found that little piece of the hike to be totally worth it (on the way down).

Today’s photo comes from a short hike about 2 hours from Ashland. The end of the hike features this view.

One of the five hikes (maps here) we ventured on this past weekend, near Yachats, ended at this tree, nearly 200 feet tall and 600 years old. The hike was awesome, by the way; the trail is lovely, and it’s an easy 2-mile hike out and back.

Another photo today from our walk on the Oregon Coast yesterday. You can see rain happening in the Pacific Ocean in this photo which was far more pleasant than the rain falling on us a bit earlier. The good thing about the rain was it cleared out most of the tourists.

If you are trying to find this spot, Google “Cape Perpetua Special Interest Area”.

Devil’s Churn

We are away from Ashland this weekend. Today we walked from Devil’s Churn to Spouting Horn, one of my favorite trails on the planet.

You can find this spot just an hour and a half south of Ashland.

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.
