Default Can you shoot in the early AM at Glass Factory without Being Blinded?

I want to make a trip out to the Glass Factory this upcoming week and would like to go out there in the early AM, like 7:00 AM or so. In the Summer, this isn't possible as the sun will blind you from about sunrise to about 10:30 or 11:00 AM.

What about this time of year? Does anyone know or have you been out there in the early AM this week? I need to take some "before" images for our big cleanup and we want to shoot, it's going to not work if the sun is blinding us. Anyone?

Seems I can recall going there 2 years ago in the fall... this time of the year, and arrived at 7am or earlier and it wasn't a problem. Distinctly remember the
MacDonald's on State street at 6am, and I wasn't "Loving It" because of the homeless people hanging there.
