Travel to Ashland

The trip to Ashland was delightful. No pictures because I was driving and my focused purpose was to get to my grandchildren. However, here are some verbal pictures of the drive. 

~ a pasture of llamas. Beautiful, graceful little animals blessing the green, green grass. 

~ a pasture of lovely horses and later of cows. 

~ unfortunately a couple of young skunks didn’t make it across the road - I dodged them and still knew they were skunks - eeewww. 

~ a sign announcing a “summit” that is lower than I live

~ coming down out of the mountains onto beautiful land with green grass and the beginning blossoming of redbud trees

~ coming down further to blossomed redbuds

~ a farm surrounded by a white fence, reminder of Kentucky horse country

~ butterflies, my first of the season

~ temperatures ranging from low 40s in Tahoe, to 73 in Redding, to upper 50s in Ashland. It is indeed spring. 

~ Mts Lassen and Shasta, heady with snow towering over spring landscapes


~ and finally, of course, arriving and walking to school to gather grands in my arms for hugs. A nice, nice day ~ and glad to be with family.

Glad that Shasta and Lassen have snow, and even more glad that you're there with your Grands!
