Ashland, Oregon: Rogue River Valley Wilderness and Shakespeare
The 2,650-mile Pacific Crest Trail links Ashland with the Klamath National Forest to the south and the Umpqua National Forest to the north. The former, about an hour’s drive, boasts cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing as well as skijoring, a sport in which skiers are pulled by dogs, horses, or even snowmobiles. Although it’s a bit farther away, Umpqua National Forest hosts Crater Lake National Park, a bright-blue lake formed from a volcanic caldera.
Starting around late February, the acclaimed Oregon Shakespeare Festival graces area theaters with the Bard’s famous ruffled collars and soliloquies narrated by donkeys.
