Jenne Butte, I’ve Got Your Number

Jenne Butte is one of numerous tiny dormant volcanoes in the Portland metro area.  It lies just east of the larger and more well known Powell Butte.  A hike here was a nice way to spend an hour and a half.  There is no signage along the way, but it was not hard to find my way up to the butte from the paved Springwater Corridor trail where cyclists of all sorts zipped by.  In thirty minutes I was on top of the first wooded summit, then found my way to the second summit with its water tower, close to a hilly suburban development on the backside.  Views are sparse, but it was still pretty in the forest. My pup and I got a little workout and were delighted to find another location for find peace and quiet close to home.
