This Rainy + Foggy Engagement session in Spencer’s Butte Oregon was SO CRAZY. Mostly because this weather was completely unexpected but also because this hike was straight uphill! I hadn’t ever been here before but all the googling lead me to believe it was a quick 1.5 mile hike. Luckily, I had gotten to Spencer’s Butte about 2 hours before Jimena and Andrew were due to arrive, so I decided to hike up to the top to scout it all out! Boy oh boy, was it rough, especially since I was only wearing Birekenstocks, what a dumb. But the hike was SO FREAKING WORTH IT. It was about 75 degrees and sunny when I got to the top, and hot freakign DAMN those views were breathtaking! You could see the whole city of Eugene, Oregon and more.
I couldn’t WAAAAAAIT for them to get there, so we could run around and play with that insane backdrop! But in typical Oregon fashion, about 30 minutes before they arrived, the weather drastically changed and it started to rain. I was a little bummed we wouldn’t be able to see the epic views due to the fog… I mean that’s what we went for! I told Jimena and Andrew that we could change locations if they didn’t wanna hike up to the top in the rain, but being the badasses that they are said HELL NO, LETS GO DO THIS THING. So on we went, and me for the second time.
Once we got to the top, we couldn’t see much in front of us, and definitely no views, BUT HOLY MOLY, it was epic. Jimena + Andrew freaking rocked it and were total troopers the whole time as we played in the rain. Sometimes amazing things can come from the unexpected adventures. This is definitely at the top of my favorite sessions list now. I mean aren’t they just the cutest!?!!?
