The silver lining

Saturday’s loss was painful, but there is a silver lining. Due to the NAIA’s odd ranking system, which rewards prior season record more than current season wins against strong opponents, SOU will likely begin 2018 with a #3 or #4 ranking. In 2017 it took an undefeated season in the toughest conference just to get to #5. Had the Raiders started 2017 at #3 or #4 they would have probably ended up at #2 and received home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Sunny days

Spring break is looking like a rainy break from sun. Today’s photo is from a couple weekends ago.

I enjoyed a lovely morning up on Buck Prairie yesterday. Snow had fallen overnight, the sun had come out, and the surface in the sunny areas seemed like it was covered in tiny diamonds. I was the first in snowshoes for the day. I was about the fourth car there. When I left, before noon, the parking lot off Dead Indian Memorial Road was packed.

The pink flowers in my front yard are several days gone now. These white ones in the backyard seem to have a longer life span, although many have fallen this week. I took this photo a week ago. As Ashland’s cherry blossom season ends, Japan’s is just beginning.

I rather like the sun stars my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g AF-S lens produces at f/16.

West Rim Drive in winter

Snowshoeing on Crater Lake’s West Rim Drive

Although Crater Lake’s snow pack is less than 30% of normal for this time of year, it is one of the few places in Southern Oregon with any snow. After bailing on our attempt to snowshoe near the Upper Rogue River due to lack of snow, we did enjoy a walk from the Rim Village to Discovery Point in 60 degree temperatures. Snowshoes weren’t absolutely necessary, but they were useful at times.
