My random, desktop image of the day is from ScienceWorks and comes from my pre-DSLR days.

Alder Springs Trail

Alder Springs Trail (Central Oregon)

Today’s photo comes from a hike we did this past Labor Day Weekend. We were in Bend. This trail was great, although getting there was not easy. Not recommended on a hot day or if you don’t have 4-wheel drive. Follow directions on the internet, not Google maps for finding the trail head. Google will send you down the wrong road and cost you at least an extra half an hour. Even when we got on the correct road, Google sent us down a couple of dead ends.

Back to why I’m sharing this photo… Ashland is on fire at the moment (later note: Almeda Fire as it came to be known), and this photo has a bit of that feel to it.

Pepsi Trail

I have ridden down the Pepsi Trail in the Ashland Watershed a couple of times, each time I vowed never to do it again. Although there is one good section, the rest is way too steep and rutted to be fun for someone like me. A few days ago I decided to ride it in the opposite direction, somehow thinking that would be better (on an electric-assist bike). Turns out, Pepsi is just as bad, if not worse, going uphill. Never again!

But the views (the one above from near the intersection with the Ashland Loop Road) are sometimes lovely.

Snow in the Siskiyous

Sunny with temps hitting the 60s today, followed by snow tomorrow night. Such is the weather in Ashland in March.

Fruitless Mulberry ‘Kingan’ on SOU campus

I missed the peak fall colors on campus this year as I was in Mexico. However, this tree, between Central Hall and Churchill Hall, goes a little later than the rest.

Pre-storm autumn sunrise

Last week’s sunrise before a day of, at times, heavy rain couldn’t have been much better–especially with our Japanese maples beginning to show off their fall colors.
