Ashland, Oregon: Farther afield

On our way down Mount Ashland, we crossed the Pacific Crest Trail. Our home, Stone's Throw Bungalow, is a short walk to town.

On our last day of a two-week stay in Ashland, Oregon, we drove to a pair of nearby attractions. Mount Ashland is a ski resort just 22 miles from town. It did not open this year due to a long drought affecting southern Oregon and California. On our way down the mountain, we got a spectacular view of 14,179-foot Mount Shasta in California.

A friendly, but slow-moving moose helped us make Harry and David's famous Moose Munch, popcorn coated in butter and candy in vats.

We heard there was free food on the tour of the nearby Harry and David headquarters, so off we went. Famed for its Fruit-of-the-Month Club and Tower of Treats, Harry and David employs 2,000 year round and 6,000 seasonal workers. We may be tempted to try a job packing gift baskets someday. Guess what our kids are getting for Christmas!
