We revisited Mount Ashland today after we aborted a recent summit attempt due to wind, cold and terrible visibility.
What a difference two weeks make!
Our snowshoes and encouragement from friends Judy and Chris got us to the top at about 7,500 feet, where more than 22 feet of snow fell this winter.
The ski resort is closed on Wednesdays, but skiers face good conditions for some spring skiing tomorrow. It is just a 40-minute drive from downtown Ashland, Oregon.
A beer and pizza stop at Growler Guys on the way home topped off a glorious day.
Reg and Sue – this looks stunning! B and I have just returned from a fun week in the French Alps – should have considered Ashland!! X
The Alps have nothing over the mountains of Ashland! (Well, that may not exactly be true.) Glad to hear you had a good time there. Perhaps we will try the Mount Blanc summit on our snow shoes when we try the trek around the peak in July!
