I believe that's the first time I've driven up the hill at dawn. Beautiful, of course, but it also appears to be the roadkill time of day. I startled two bunnies and two deer off the roadway, and came close to snagging a bird (Straggler of the flock - shame on him).
Parked at my parents', and started scanning the side road. Found my bright blue baby within 5 minutes, dusted him off, put him back in the phone, and was ready to roll.
I haven't heard from them - hopefully I didn't wake them in the process.
Back home, going to sleep for at least an hour or two.
