Peaceful predawn sounds of nature and a crazy person by the lake here at Laurelhurst Park in Portland Oregon. You can come as early as 5 AM and watch the sunrise. I often do. I'm attaching a recording of some sounds by the lake this morning. If you listen closely, you can hear some of the sounds you hear just before the sun rises at beautiful Laurelhurst Park.
