Valley View Winery

Valley View Winery (Jacksonville, Oregon)

@valleyviewwine

Great name for a winery, but let’s be honest. They should be called Mountain View Winery or View from the Valley Winery, and the winery on the top of the mountain should be called Valley View Winery.

Three Sisters from Whychus Overlook

The third-, fourth-, and fifth-highest peaks in Oregon

We’ve spent the past several days in Bend. On Saturday we did about a 6-mile or so hike that included this view. The view actually was better later at a place called Peak View. We were the only people on the last couple miles of this loop trail.

Directions: Start at the Whychus Creek Trailhead parking area. The trail along the creek is lovely. Most people do it as an out and back. Hence, that trail can be rather crowded. Turn it into a loop, instead, by going to Whychus Creek Overlook (pictured above), then cross the highway at the Whychus Creek Overlook Parking area. From there take a mountain bike trail from point 34 to 29 on the map you’ll see at 34. 29 is Peak View. At 29 you can get off the mountain bike trail and onto a steep, but beautiful, trail down to the Whychus Creek Trailhead parking area. There are warnings about the steepness and difficultness of that section, but unless it’s icy you’ll be fine walking it. You wouldn’t want to be on a bike though.

South Fork Lakes Trail

South Fork Lakes Trail (Trinity Alps, California)

We made another expedition into the Trinity Alps yesterday. These hikes are a bit over an hour an half south of Ashland. We’ve done at least a half dozen of them by now. AllTrails clocks this one in a 4.1 miles round trip which is an underestimate. Our various apps came in at somewhere between 5 and 7 miles. Factor in the elevation changes, my bad back, and my old age, and I’m giving this one a solid 15 miles. 😉

Seriously, though, the Upper South Fork Lake is gorgeous and well worth the effort.

After a few weeks of summer, we are back to spring today and for the next week or two.

Today’s photo is from a different time of year when the weather couldn’t make up its mind with regard to which season it should be.

MFR to SLC

MFR to SLC

Last week we flew from Medford to Salt Lake City. I’ve made that trip a number of times, although not recently, and this was the first time we went by air. The views, even though it was the middle of the day (so no sunrises or sunsets), were quite nice.
