We left home at 9:02 this morning (pretty good for us—our goal was 9:00) to head toward Ashland, Oregon to the North. I do not think that in my whole life I have taken the inland passage to Oregon up Highway 5. My memory is of always going up 101 through Crescent City (always famous for the effects the earthquake tsunamis had on it.) So the scenery was new and by the time we arrived at Shasta Lake I kept muttering, “wow…”
The ClassicPan app caught it from a rest stop.
The only uncomfortable thing about the drive was that it was Friday and there were lots of transport trucks on the road.
Hipstamatic app caught the traffic but we kept ahead of the rain blowing into the San Francisco region and saw some snow topped mountains.
I think this was the native camera with no apps from the front seat of the car.
We stopped for afternoon coffee in Dunsmuir, an historic town with a great theater (no longer open). Native camera with Iris Photo Suite cropping and vignetting.
Although I didn’t drink the water I think this refers to the quality of the fishing since they also had this painted wall and a fly shop.
Iris Photo Suite again.
We walked all around Ashland before dinner and found another movie theater.
It was a Friday evening art walk in a very vibrant downtown.
and copper people:
If you have ever been in my house you would understand how excited I was to see copper people. I’ve put copper on counters, walls, lightfixtures—anywhere I can crinkle it and patina it.
To top it off, there were many historic buildings that are on the National Register of Historic Places.
An Episcopal Church.
And best of all, the Peerless Hotel and Restaurant.
