Walking around town the last few days and a quick Spencer Butte ramble in a thick druid-fog, my camera found interesting autumn flowers, mushrooms and an inability to photo through the fog.
After some rain and a bit of warm weather, mushrooms popped everywhere – even in our yard, front and back.
Late season flowers are amazing. How do they either bloom now, or keep blooming this long is a mystery to me. Beautiful, nonetheless!
Spencer Butte Ramble
This was the first hike since my illness 10-10, and my conditioning was a tad off, to say the least. The second time up the Butte, I was tired. A new feeling for me under 10 miles. The hike went from Fox Hollow th to top, down to N. Willamette th and back to top and finally to Fox Hollow th. Trail conditions were perfect – wet, but not muddy so a bit cushiony. The first time up very few humans, but the second was like a busy sidewalk. Fog was thick like a druid-fog.
