I drop Ann off at a trailhead at the base of the foothills, then drive up to Rotary Park to meet Sean. We boulder for awhile, stopping often to admire the setting. There are these bushes in bloom – not lilacs but similar – just going nuts right now. Combine it with the sunset and the boulders, and you get frequent stops to take in the view. Ann appears, having hiked 4 miles up to Rotary, and enjoys a few moves before we start to lose the light.
