WIth very unstable air that turned cold to warm to cold and back to warm, I headed out to Spencer Butte, Fox Hollow trailhead for a good 15+mile ramble and importantly timed to catch the sunrise at the top. Driving there had me swerving around a family of deer weirdly in the street, and then the birds at Cascade Raptor Center were really making noise. I recorded them, but it was too far away and all the other noise crowded them out.
The hike when like this after leaving the car ~7:15am:
- Fox Hollow TH to the top
- Top to N. Willamette TH
- Willamette to the top
- Top to Baldy
- Baldy to the top
- Top back to Fox Hollow
For most of the hike, camera was inside roll-top dry bag as rain came / went. Sunrise was good, however, and there were few people on the trail which was even better!
