Part two of the UO Visit involved LOTS of walking. We took a hike up to Spencer’s Butte, courtesy of our lovely host, and then we explored downtown extensively. I found a pie shop, several book shops, and the public library, so I am pretty much set. Those are the necessities (well, those and coffee, burgers, and fries. But the latter three items can be found pretty much everywhere in Eugene). There aren’t many pictures of downtown, partly because I got lazy and partly because my camera died, but mostly because I was too busy exploring to stop and take pictures every thirty seconds.
Entrance to a hiking trail near Spencer’s Butte.
It’s misty at the top.
Rocks and moss.
The muddy, muddy trail.
So. Much. Color.
WATER (can you tell I’m from drought-central?)
And the trail keeps going up. I’m 99.9% sure it eventually leads to Rivendell or some other Elven enclave.
It got more overcast.
Interesting tree. Temperate rain forests are the best. 🙂
View from somewhere midwayish.
More mossy rocks. I’m obsessed, okay?
Near the top…
I think this is from the top.
And, cut scene to downtown(ish) Eugene…
Random intersection, cool old house.
An arcade the SO and I stumbled into. They had local hard-cider, so I was happy despite being legitimately HORRIBLE at all of the games.
