What a difference a year makes

Mt. Ashland still doesn’t have enough snow to open. My snowshoes have sat in the garage this winter, just like they did this past summer. Maybe the storms later this week will produce something?

Large sections of the PCT, in Oregon anyway, are very walkable this time of year even though last year they were under many feet of snow.

White Christmas

White Christmas on Mt. Ashland

For our Christmas walk this year we went to Jacksonville and pretty much walked in the dark. Last year, when I took this photo, we were up on Mt. Ashland under blue skies and had an extraordinary sunset.

Today’s forecast is for a high of 97 degrees with lots of smoke so today’s photo is of 32 degrees and clear skies.

Happy Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras isn’t technically until Tuesday, but the festivities kick off this weekend in New Orleans. They’ve been raging on my neighbor’s lawn for weeks now and have received a heavy coat of snow this past week.

Natural Bridge

Natural Bridge in the Rogue River

Today’s photo comes from my snowshoeing adventure a couple weekend’s ago. Although I’ve turned out at Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint on Highway 62 more than a dozen times over the years, I had never been to Natural Bridge Viewpoint before. The two are very close to each other, but Natural Bridge is a bit off the highway.

During winter you can’t get to the viewpoint via a car. That fact made this trek interesting for me. I was able to park in the normal turnout on Highway 62 even though the road (Rd 300 on Google maps) is not plowed. There was room for maybe three cars, but mine was the only one there on this day. From there I walked on snowshoes a little over half a mile to this location.

The Rogue River was higher than normal so the natural bridge in today’s photo isn’t that visible, but in person the scene was pretty spectacular. Water goes underground, through a lava tube, before exiting back into the Rogue River 250 feet downstream.
