Another unstable air day for a time-boxed hike on Ridgeline Trail (All Trails). For the time box, I wanted to be home, coffee-full and showered by 1pm; between enough light to see and that time constraint, it was up to my feet.

Started as typical from the S Willamette TH, and went quickly thru to Blanton and then turned around – there are always other hikers / runners on the Blanton section. Today, there were two deer – this year’s children already abandoned by their mother was my guess. Too dark, again, for a pic.

By the time I returned to Willamette there was no confusion about what season is upon us.

Most of the hike was in the fog, rain and mist … the air above the hills was heavy and layered.

The hike itself was uneventful yet given the time box, I was unable to reach the top 2x while hitting both Blanton and Baldy end points – needed another 45 minutes (for a rest too). This was the first ‘boot’ hike of the season as the mud is back!
