Where We Live

We live in the USA state of Oregon which is on the Pacific Ocean side of the USA (USA west coast). Oregon is just to the north of California, and south of the state of Washington. USA Map showing Oregon and Ashland

Our town, Ashland, has a population of about 21,000. While this is nearly twice the population of Tuvalu, it feels like a small town. We can walk almost everywhere in our town, for example. It is a good place to live, with a university, a community college nearby, and many theaters, interesting restaurants, good music, and interesting art.

Ashland, elevation about 650m (2000 ft), sits in a valley surrounded by quite high mountains -- to the east the Cascades, which can rise to well over 3000 meters (10,000 ft), and to the south and west, the Siskiyou and Klamath mountains, a bit lower but much older.

Anne and I enjoy outdoor activities including walking, skiing in winter, hiking and camping, and exploring the western deserts of the USA in our Volkswagen camper. We have lived in Italy recently and try to visit there each year or two. Our three children, Nonu, Kilea and Tavita (Lorien, Claire, David) visit us in the summer and we usually have at least one backpacking trip into the mountains with them.
