Oregon is famous for the rugged and magnificent mountains and the unbelievably beautiful coastline. Ashland, Oregon is home to the Shakespeare Festival which draws thousands every year. The small town feel, deep forests and solitary river and lakes, create a zen like feeling leaving guests who are in the town for the presentation to wonder what else can we do before heading off to Portland or Seattle?

Ashland Oregon Day Trips answers the call with a compilation of more than 55 photographers and 156 pages of gorgeous, humbling and overwhelming pictures with a few details on the location. All the locations are within a three hour trip from Ashland, Oregon.

The table of content sections the trips in regions: Jacksonville and The Applegate Valley; North in Interstate 5; Along the Redwood Highway; Crater Lake and the Umpqua National Forest; East to Klamath Lake; South on Interstate 5; West to the Coast.

The photographs within the covers of this tome are collected from hundreds submitted by local photographers and capture such notable landmarks as Crater Lake, National Park, Rogue River, both mild and white water, giant redwoods, the Klamath Wildlife Refuge, and Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Ashland Oregon Day Trips introduces the idiosyncratic culture of towns such as Jacksonville, Yreka, Bandon and Brookings. Headed to Oregon, Ashland Oregon Day Trips provides insights from a local’s point of view.

Armchair travelers are welcome also. The breathtaking beauty, of places some never seen, captured through the lens of a local who knows which sunset is exceptionally stunning and understands stumbling onto an Roosevelt Elk bathed in golden evening light at Gold Bluffs Beach in Redwoods National Park in Northern California is a rare gift.

Ashland Oregon Day Trips capture the warm, summer ,sunny days and also the deep frozen winters. Autumns shaded with a painter's palette of rusts, browns and reds. And finally spring blooms with yellows, blues, pinks and greens. A masterclass of artistic cratsmanship, naturally.  

The Bandon sunset and coastline pictures are arrestingly beautiful. Crater Lake, the deepest in the United States, with clear, deep blue, water was formed when an eruption caused the collapse of one of the surrounding tall mountain peaks. The others are still surrounding the lake. Photos capture the splendor of the lake, the folklore of its creation, the still standing monuments and parent peak surrounding the fallen peak.

An eclipse over Mt. Shasta is displayed in time elapsed photography. The barrenness of Little Shasta, with a single church steeple standing at the foot of this impressive majestic mountain. The photography is awe-inspiring.

    As I look outside my window, to see a whole city covered in a blanket of snow, I’m reminded of Bing Crosby, Christmas carols and all things holiday. Yet, the presents under the tree have been opened for some time now, the ornaments gone, and lights properly put away. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter, being from Colorado; I love skiing down the slopes of Breckenridge and walking in my snow-boots to Starbucks. I love everything from the first frost to the last flake falling.
