Waking up at four in the morning is wonderful. The world is still mostly asleep, the streets are deserted. Hiking Spencer’s Butte in the morning is also wonderful. Though there wasn’t much of a sunrise this morning. Or peace. A group of girls hiked together in hopes of spending some time with God in nature, a break from school and the noise of Eugene. What we found when we climbed to the top was a group of hungover frat boys who had to of hiked the butte at some point in the middle of the night. They tried to be entertaining…but failed in my book.
Nonetheless. It was still a breath-taking view and a wonderful workout to kick-start my Saturday. Above all, it was a privilege to spend time with some truly wonderful young women who have a lot to offer the world.
