Sunset from the Rogue Valley - Mt McLoughlin

To me, Mt. McLoughlin usually steals the show in the Rogue Valley, but the sunset from Tuesday night was one that found not only me pulling over to take photos, but many others, also.

Absolutely gorgeous. Fabulous colors, and cloud formations.

If you have never been to Oregon, especially southern Oregon, you need to try to make the time to!

Mysterious fogs.

I always find fogs rather mysterious. I got lost crossing a road in London one night, just crossing a road - I couldn't find the other side. I tried to hire a taxi to take me home. As soon as I gave directions the cabbie would leave - they wouldn't drive through Hampstead Heath in the fog. Finally I got a cab to stop, and jumped in .... and refused to get out.

The Oregon coast is WONDERFUL. But I get disappointed with photo taking as it's rather foggy. Go a mile or few inland and it's 10 to 30 degrees warmer and cloudless blue skies. Without the fog, the Redwoods wouldn't grow, and I adore the Redwoods. In one last visit to the coast before winter the fog drifted in for the Sunday morning. We found ourselves driving down mysterious roads in the mysterious fog, never knowing what we would find. Roads full of cows transporting themselves to and from milkings, and crows landing on fence posts. This is one such crow/raven/black bird.

A place to enjoy summer days!

With all the forests and lakes and waterways in Southern Oregon, there is no shortage of great places to spend a summer day. One not too far from Medford is Lake of the Woods. It is a resort that has been around for over a century. Seeped in history. A place for great fun and memories. With temperatures hitting over 100 degrees at the moment, it sure is a great place to be.

Never go away hungry from this restaurant.

A favorite. Giant size, yummy proportions from the Old Farmhouse Restaturant. Breakfast can last you all day. A Belgium waffle with strawberries and a La Granja Omelet. 4 locations in and around Medford, Oregon.

Red, White and Blue - 4th July, 2012

Spent the 4th of July in Merlin, Oregon. The people's house had a wonderful pond with lots of dragonflies. This beauty (I call it 'red') kept landing on this one pole, posing beautifully.
What magnificent creatures!

Rogue River, White City. Spring delight.

A delight in spring. Seeing new greenery in the garden. This one on the banks of the Rogue River. Enjoy!

Spring has sprung!

Not quite so rainy this spring in beautiful Southern Oregon.

Blossoms are out everywhere, and staying a bit, because the rain is not causing them to drop.
These were on the main street in Central Point. I turned around to get them for you!

Spring comes to the Rogue Valley!

Abundant pale pink blossoms in Jacksonville, Oregon. So fleeting, but so beautiful. Spring is a delight! ~Jillian

Applegate - the pink barn!

Just recently I joined Pinterest. I love it.
Pink seems to be a popular subject and so I thought I'd be on the look out for something pink.
I never expected it to come in the form of a barn (BTW - barns are popular, too! ;) ).
This barn is in Applegate valley.
A truly wonderful place to visit.
A gorgeous day for a drive today with spring busting out all over.

I had been scoping this out as a place to take a photo.
Turned out just as I hoped!

Plant nursery nearby.

Revisting S.O. I'm sure there is a great caption for this!

Seen near Jacksonville, Southern Oregon this past Sunday.
