Upper Rogue River in winter

Yesterday we went in search of Boundary Springs. We couldn’t find the trailhead (or maybe we did and just didn’t know it). In any event, we parked at the Mazama Viewpoint off Highway 230 as we could see no other place to park near the Mile 19 marker, which is where we read the trail is supposed to start. The sign at Mazama Viewpoint said Upper Rogue River Trail (I think). There was no internet from there, but my GPS worked fine. It looked like we could still do the Boundary Springs Trail if we could find it.

Even though there should have been tons of snow in the area, the snow was fairly minimal–especially for this time of year–so we didn’t bother to put our snowshoes on. We ended up walking on the trail for several miles before realizing we were no longer going toward Boundary Springs. At that point we turned around, walked back to our car, drove to Crater Lake, and snowshoed there.

I want to try the Boundary Springs Trail again. I saw this sign, but couldn’t read it. Apparently this is where we should have turned to get to Boundary Springs.

Mossy trees in Monroe, Oregon

I went for a walk this past Sunday morning when we were staying at the Inn at Diamond Woods, a place on a golf course between Eugene and Corvallis. The grass was mostly flooded from the rain the day before so there weren’t many golfers.

The sun had barely peeked through the clouds when I took today’s photo. Rain began again soon thereafter which was fine by us since we were going to be indoors all the rest of the day at the CEVA Presidents’ Day Volleyball Tournament.
