Ashland, Oregon Day Trips
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.
About Barbara Tricarico (Ashland, Oregon Author)
Barbara Tricarico is the author of two coffee table photography books that feature the works of over 30 local photographers: "Ashland, Oregon" and "Ashland, Oregon Day Trips." She is co-author of "Quilts of Virginia: 1607-1899" by the Virginia Consortium of Quilters and is currently compiling a series of books on "Oregon" for Schiffer Publishing.
Barbara received a BA degree in English from George Mason University and an MA degree from Gallaudet University. A former English teacher, she delighted in adding Shakespearean quotes to her "Ashland, Oregon" book, colorful descriptions to her "Day Trips" book, and historical facts to "Quilts of Virginia." A friend once told Barbara that photographs are never taken--they're given. She feels her books are gifts to everyone who opens their covers.
