Flying by Mount McLoughlin

In late May I flew down to Oakland in a friend’s private plane. Soon after takeoff from the Ashland Municipal Airport this was the view out the window.

Mount McLoughlin from Peabody’s Wayback

I went on my third snowshoeing adventure yesterday. I parked at Buck Prairie, snowshoed Peabody’s Wayback, and the location above is at or near Peabody’s Lookout. I never saw a sign that said Peabody’s Lookout so I may not have actually made it there. The trail ran out at this point so I headed straight down the mountain and ended up between the restroom and Natasha’s View on the map so I figure I was close to Peabody’s Lookout.

In the distance in today’s panorama photo you can see a portion of snowed over Howard Prairie Lake and beyond that Mt. McLoughlin on the left and Brown Mountain on the right. Next time I’ll have to bring my 70-300mm lens instead of my 14-24mm lens for a much more close up view of these beauties.

Howard Prairie Lake

Twenty miles east of Ashland you will find Howard Prairie Lake. We headed up there yesterday to escape the heat and take a bike ride. At an elevation of over 4500 feet (Ashland is at 2000 feet), the temperature is usually about 10 degrees cooler.

Today’s photo is a three pic photomerge (with a wide angle lens to begin with) so it covers almost 180 degrees. If you look really closely you can see Mt. McLoughlin to the right of center.

Eastview Trail – Ashland, Oregon

The guidebooks for hiking or biking Eastview Trail talk about the wonderful views from the trail itself. Actually, there aren’t any views of the east anymore from Eastview Trail as the trees have grown since the trail was created and now the views are all obstructed. It’s still a nice trail though.

Near the trail head you do get a bit of a view from the location pictured here. That’s Mount McLoughlin poking up in the distance on the right.

Mt. McLoughlin from High Lakes Trail

Mt. McLaughlin from High Lakes Trail - Southern Oregon - Outdoor things to do in the Rogue Valley

Two thousand years ago andesite lava flows erupted from Brown Mountain near Fish Lake. Many of these rocks can still be seen along the High Lakes Trail. I like the change in scenery while riding a bike along this trail; one minute you are in a forest and the next you are cruising through single track with lava rocks on both sides of you.

Mt. McLoughlin from Jacksonville, Oregon

Wrapping up this short series from Bigham’s Knoll in Jacksonville, here is the view of Mt. McLoughlin (the point covered in snow) from the top of the bell tower. Note that you normally can’t just walk up some stairs to the bell tower. I have connections. 😉

This is the fourth time I’ve shown you Mt. McLaughlin, each time from a very different angle. I think I like this one the best due to my love of clouds.

Mt. McLaughlin from Camp McLoughlin

Why is the Camp McLoughlin spelling different from the mountain’s spelling? I don’t know. It turns out it isn’t. I’ve been spelling Mt. McLoughlin wrong all this time.
