New Years Day Spencer Butte

Tuesday, January 1, 2013
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 2.2 miles, 600 ft (Moderate)

The 5th annual New Years Spencer Butte hike lucked out again with sun and blue skies. Twenty eight hikers were overjoyed with the spectacular sharp views of the snowy Cascades. “You can see all the way to the tip of Mt. Hood!” was voiced by many. As usual there was confusion if one can really see Mt. Hood from Spencer Butte.( No, you can't.) Shared snacks and conversation basking in the sun above the clouds was an auspicious way to begin the first day of the year. 2009 –7 hikers, 2010 - 2 hikers, 2011 – 9 hikers, 2012 – 21 hikers.
