Ascent Trip Report

First time I met not a soul on the trail while treking up this peak (once leaving the paved bike path running north on the east side). Based on the dew drops on the vegetation, I was the first one up this morning (around 8 am). I've made this my morning exercise, since I've yet to join a health club here in Oregon as opposed to the one that came with the house I rented in Hawaii. The trail wasn't muddy despite a day of rain the day before. However, this was not to be for long, with the coming of the November rains.
