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.

Change in the weather

Autumn snow

After a few weeks of summer, we are back to spring today and for the next week or two.

Today’s photo is from a different time of year when the weather couldn’t make up its mind with regard to which season it should be.

MFR to SLC

MFR to SLC

Last week we flew from Medford to Salt Lake City. I’ve made that trip a number of times, although not recently, and this was the first time we went by air. The views, even though it was the middle of the day (so no sunrises or sunsets), were quite nice.

My random, desktop image of the day is this one from a little over two years ago.

Smoke in the west

One of the reasons I enjoy teaching in Copenhagen in the summer is the weather is better than Ashland (to me anyway, I prefer 70s to 90s). The air is crisp and clean in Copenhagen, and Ashland can frequently be smoky in the summer. This year I missed Ashland’s clean air summer season and returned just in time for the smoke.

Today’s photo comes from my return flight to Portland (PDX) from Iceland (KEF). This wasn’t anywhere near Ashland, and probably not that close to Portland. It could have been Idaho or Washington. However, visibility out of PDX was horrible so the smoke was very much in Portland.

In the three + days I’ve been home Ashland has been hot and smoky (although not as bad as it can become).

Grizzly Peak Sunrise

Sunrise hits Grizzly Peak

Today’s photo is from this morning. The whole town was in shadow, but Grizzly Peak was glowing.

Strange winter scene on Grizzly Peak

View from Grizzly Peak during minimal snow winter

I have yet to break out my snow shoes this winter. Last weekend we hiked to the top of Grizzly Peak where I took this photo from. Last year at this time this was the scene miles below the location of today’s photo.

This year we were able to drive all the way to the parking lot which is pretty much unheard of in January or February. From there the trail usually has several feet of snow on it in winter as it is in the shade and doesn’t melt until May or so. Not this year.

Cold Blue Mountain

Cold Blue Mountain
Ashland, Oregon

Cold Blue Mountain, a band from Chico, California, is scheduled to play at Club 66 next Friday night (1/17/14). Today’s photo is of Ashland’s own cold blue mountains from last month’s snow storm.

Santa Barbara panorama

Nine-photo photomerge from the Santa Barbara County Courthouse

According to the TripAdvisor website, the best attraction in Santa Barbara is the nearly one-hundred-year-old Santa Barbara Courthouse. Today’s photo is about 200 degrees of the view from the top of the clock tower. The Santa Ynez Mountains, pictured in this panorama, were our next stop.

Mt. Shasta

Aerial photo of Mt. Shasta

Today’s photo comes from a flight back in May when I flew out of the Ashland airport on my way to the Oakland airport. This photo was actually taken on the return trip in the evening.
