Emigrant Lake (Ashland, OR)

Redding to Ashland (click on map to enlarge)

After our stay in Redding, CA, we headed for Oregon.

I drove the first leg of the trip to Ashland, OR and thought I had it rough because I drove our RV through several 6% grades and over a 3,000 foot summit.

Was I wrong. Jan had the same amount of 6% grades plus a long final descent into Ashland from 4,000 feet.

Mount Shasta

On our drive up, we drove past Mount Shasta which had an unusual amount of snow cover.

We arrived at our campsite on Emigrant Lake about 2 pm on Saturday while a large festival was taking place in one end of the county park. Very crowded, but our campground was at the other end of the park.

For Wisconsinites, think of Ashland as a combination of Madison and Cedarburg (university town & tourist trap) . . . an abundance of quaint, pricey shops with a number of theaters including the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Plus, beautiful Ashland Creek runs through the town. Yeah, we could live here.
