The Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon, draws hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. Many wonder, "What else can we do while in town?" The answer lies in this book, a photographic essay of natural, historic, and iconic sites within a three-hour drive. Fifty-five area photographers capture notable landmarks such as Crater Lake National Park, the wild and scenic Rogue River, giant redwoods, the Klamath Wildlife Refuge, and Lassen Volcanic National Park. On-the-road and armchair travelers alike are invited to take in the idiosyncratic culture of towns such as Jacksonville, Yreka, Bandon, and Brookings. There's plenty here for history buffs, too. Readers are invited to savor the culture and biodiversity of Ashland, but also step out into its spectacular surroundings.
Local Ashland, Oregon author and photographer Barbara Tricaroco has been an avid photographer her entire life and is a member of the Southern Oregon Photography Association.
