Sunset from Paschal Winery and Vineyard

Last night felt like that day after you’ve been sick for over a week and now you’re 100%. Unfortunately, the smoke returned during the night.

I apologize for the low resolution on this one. I didn’t have my camera so had to settle for this cell phone pic at the Danielle Kelly Soul Project show.

Late May in Ashland

A cell phone pic from a bike ride I took last week. I wonder when the last time was that Mt. Ashland had this much snow on it on the last day of May?

Hiro Ramen in Ashland

Tonkotsu ramen (Hiro Ramen – Ashland, Oregon)

I’m more than a bit of a ramen nerd. I’ve tried all sorts of ramen across Japan and have sampled it in several other countries as well. I have been diligently following Ramen Adventures for a decade now.

Outside of Japan, ramen is usually mediocre at best, although there are a couple exceptions in the San Francisco Bay Area. A few places in Ashland serve ramen, but they are well below decent.

So a couple months ago, when I saw the sign for Hiro Ramen going up I was very excited. I tried to get a bowl, but they weren’t open yet. I was a bit disappointed that the owners were Korean instead of Japanese, but I did have some decent ramen in Korea so I was still hopeful.

Hiro Ramen is a touch above good, not great, but still pretty darn good–especially for Southern Oregon and non-Japanese ownership. It may be the best ramen between Portland and San Francisco. The service is very good, and the vibe in the place is nice.

I’ve sampled several different bowls. The tonkotsu (pictured above) is the best one in my opinion.

They’ve recently expanded the menu to include some Korean dishes (bulgogi, bibimbap, kimbap, etc.). I haven’t tried any of them yet. The egg in the ramen has improved over time. On my first visit, it was a hard boiled egg. They have fixed that so now it is more like the egg you get in Japan.

I will continue to eat here at least once a week.

Hobart Bluff on Thanksgiving

Pilot Rock from Hobart Bluff

We traditionally take a walk on the White Rabbit Trail in the Ashland watershed on Thanksgiving. However, our walking partner was out of the country yesterday so we opted for Hobart Bluff instead. The trail, itself, wasn’t in great shape as it was muddy or slick with snow or ice, but the view at the end was worth it.

Ashland’s Red Queen Trail

Red Queen Trail (approaching the intersection with Road 2060, AKA Ashland Loop Road)

There’s a new trail in town. The Red Queen has been built over the past few weeks and is now open and ready for foot traffic. The trail runs from a couple intersections with Bandersnatch or Jub Jub up to the intersection of Caterpillar crossing the Ashland Loop Road. There aren’t any significant view or overlook areas, but it is a nice trail in the watershed without any bikes.

One way to get there is to park near the water tank where Terrace and Ashland Loop intersect. Just past the water tank on Ashland Loop an unmarked trail begins going uphill. This turns into Red Queen (and is marked) for a bit, before becoming Bandersnatch, and then reverting to Red Queen (again marked as Red Queen). If you are on Caterpillar and want to go down Red Queen look for the unmarked trails heading toward Reeder Reservoir on the left side of Ashland Loop as you are heading down. The left one is for bikes (Jabberwocky) and the right one (not marked as Red Queen but with an indication that is only for walkers and horses) is Red Queen.
