Ashland Pond after the Almeda Fire

Ashland Pond (September 10, 2020)

#AlmedaFire #GlendowerFire #OregonFires

One of my favorite places to visit in town is located close to the origin of the horrific Almeda Fire that began on September 8, 2020 and razed over 600 homes, mostly in Phoenix and Talent, Oregon.

I rode my bike down Almeda Drive and Glendower Street today, like many times before, but everything is different. The homes are all still there, and there doesn’t appear to be any damage to the structures, but the fields nearby are a wasteland coated in inches of ash.

Here is a photo of Ashland Pond from less than five months ago.

Eight years ago today…

Rafting the Rogue River

Rogue River (Oregon)

This past Monday we rafted down a portion of the Rogue River. We used to do this at least once a year, but I think it’s been about five years since the last time. Kids grew up and all of that stuff…

Today’s photo comes from July of 2015, which was also the last time I was in the USA in July (until this year). That year included a trip down the Wild & Scenic portion of the Rogue River, a wonderful July 4 celebration, and lots of Britt shows. There was also a bunch of smoke in the Rogue Valley that year.

This year there will be no trips down the Rogue, July 4 festivities, or Britt. Hopefully there won’t be any smoke as minor compensation.
