Ashland Pond

Ashland Pond

Or is it Ashland Ponds? This place is Ashland Ponds on Google Maps, but there is only one pond here.

I had never heard of, or happened on, this place after nearly 20 years in Ashland. And I get around, but somehow Ashland Pond never made it onto my radar. We were heading out to do a ride/run on the Bear Creek Greenway, like we have a million times before, when I saw this on Google Maps with what appeared to be a trail around it so we investigated. Lovely spot with no people and lots of wildlife. We saw numerous birds, ducks, and turtles. Upon further research it appears that you may encounter a family of river otters in this place as well.

You can’t get here from the Bear Creek Greenway (as far as I can tell). Instead, head to the end of Glendower Street, through the gap in the barrier, and go down and to the left.

The senior season that wasn’t

Cherry blossoms in Ashland

桜

On a bike ride last week I encountered some of the loveliest cherry blossoms I’ve ever seen. I didn’t have my camera with me so the next day I went on another ride with my camera. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember where I saw them the day before. I never did find them, but I did get a shot of these.

Ashland during COVID-19

Ashland Shopping Center (April 2020)

I have never driven through the Ashland Shopping Center parking lot at 4 a.m., but I imagine it looks something like this only darker. On a Wednesday, at 4 p.m., this parking lot is usually 70-90% full. Not on the day I took this photo, however, which was a Wednesday at 4 p.m. Even on national holidays this parking lot has more activity as Ashland Street Cinema normally runs 365 days a year.

How is your spring going so far?

East Applegate Ridge Trail

East Applegate Ridge Trail

Yesterday we discovered a new trail less than 40 minutes from Ashland. The trail isn’t actually new, but it’s rare that we stumble upon a new trail to us after living in Southern Oregon for 20 years. The trail is a little over 10-miles out and back or five miles if you leave a car at one end. There is a parking lot at each end, although some trail descriptions say there is no parking on the west side. That parking lot (difficult to find as there are no signs on Highway 238 near Ruch) is relatively new.

Tate Hoffman achieves All-American status

The abrupt ending of this year’s NAIA basketball season was difficult for the 16 remaining teams, including three from the Cascade Conference. No National Champion was crowned, and all three CCC teams had a legitimate shot with College of Idaho being a number 1 seed and SOU and OIT being number 2 seeds. How cool would it have been had there been three CCC teams in the final four?

Tate Hoffman received a bit of a consolation prize with his All-American achievement being announced yesterday.

BTW, Massey had SOU at #6 in their final rankings.
