At the top of Castle Rock, the bluebells and other wildflowers pepper the hillside with colour, and are a delightful reminder of things to come—hikes, downhill bikes, patio beers and riverside dips. Though the wind still holds a touch of winter in its breath, summer closes in with each day, and warms the valley for those ready to come out and play.
