Takelma Gorge on the Rogue River in autumn

Takelma Gorge

Today’s photo comes from yesterday’s hike along the Rogue River. This place is just an hour and 20 minutes from my home, but it took me 21 years to find it.

October is obviously the best time for this trail. Park at Woodruff Bridge and head south on the Upper Rogue River Trail.

Ashland skies

Ashland, Oregon between storms (April 2012)

I’ve been back in Ashland for almost a month now, and the sky has been visible less than 1% of that time. So here’s one from over eight years ago.

Stout Grove in the California Redwoods

On our way back from three nights in Gold Beach on the Oregon coast this past weekend, we stopped off in Stout Grove for the first time in over eight years. We went there probably 10 times during our first 12 years in Ashland but haven’t had the chance recently.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by…

Which way?

Toothpick Trail

Toothpick Trail (Ashland Watershed)

Toothpick Trail is my go-to trail when I have a spare hour. I probably ride it about once a week from April until November and then drop down to once or twice a month when it gets cold. Mid-October until about now is my favorite time of the year as the temperatures and colors are just right.

Big Bear Lake in the Trinity Alps

Big Bear Lake in the Trinity Alps (California)

The hike to Big Bear Lake is not easy at over eight miles round trip and almost 3,000 feet of elevation gain, but this is one of the more gorgeous lakes in the Trinity Alps. The drive from Ashland is about two hours to the trailhead.

Blast from the past

SOU ISA International Show 2013

My random, desktop image of the day is this one from over seven years ago. Where are they now? How many are still in the USA? I have no idea.

Eight years ago today…

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.
