Eclipse day -1

Sunlight, moss, and a bed of clover

We hiked around on Marys Peak today. Most people were just heading to the summit, which was rather unspectacular, IMO, and then heading back to their cars and taking off. The view from the summit would be far more spectacular at sunrise, sunset, or on an extremely clear day. Today things were a bit hazy and the overhead sunlight washed everything out. So a runner we talked to recommended the Meadow Edge Trail. This trail was extraordinary. As we walked in an old growth Noble Fir forest the sunlight came squeezing through just enough to make the clover-covered ground look amazing. This was probably my second favorite trail (after Stout Grove in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park) that didn’t include real “views” or a lake at the end.

Eclipse day -2

Cape Foulweather Lighthouse

We are spending a couple of nights in Corvallis for Monday’s solar eclipse. Today we arrived, headed to the coast (Newport, Oregon), and arrived at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse just as the sun was going down.

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).

Two years ago today…

Cooks Chasm?

Near Yachats, Oregon

First of all, apologies to those of you who check in daily for a photo. Obviously the blog has not been living up to its name over the past few weeks. I’ve been traveling, and hopefully I’ll have more regular entries going forward.

Today’s photo is from Thanksgiving a couple years ago. I’m not sure if this is Cooks Chasm or another one of the many other sheer-sided inlets on Cape Perpetua.

More photos from that trip can be found here.

Throwback Thursday

Hobart Bluff

With temperatures expected to reach the 90s by the end of the weekend, it’s a little hard to believe that today’s photo is from less than two weeks ago. Such is springtime in Ashland.
