Summer snaps – day thirty three

Okay, let’s just go with phone pictures when I’m traveling, because who really wants to stay up an extra half hour (at least) for the editing and writing and posting after such a long day of adventuring? Not me, obv. Agreed? Agreed. (Good thing I made up this whole photo a day challenge for myself to begin with, hehe)

Today was the 4th of July, so we celebrated by watching the parade on our last day in Ashland. They’ve got a pretty packed parade and it was a lot of fun! We walked around and checked out the booths afterward, and spent some time wading in the (cold!) creek before going to see some band concerts.  Of course, I managed to slip on the rocks and badly stub a few toes, which now feel a lil bit broken and super swollen, so that sadly cut our festivities short. (and perfect timing since we have an entire day of plane travel tomorrow, huh?) But we had a pleasant time overall, and Ben had the idea of driving up Mt Ashland to see the ski area and the crazy gorgeous view. It was a great plan for an invalid wife! Thank goodness for rental cars. And smart husbands, and beautiful mountains. You can see Mt Shasta in California if you look closely – it’s the one still covered in snow!
