With our daily romp put on hold until the afternoon, I decided to capture a rare sight--sunset. So I held out for an extra half hour, leaving home at 3:05, which put us on the trail just before 3:15,
knowing, if we took our time, we'd be on the trail until 4:15,
also knowing, full well, that the sun wouldn't set until nearly 5:00, but the thought of waiting an extra hour seemed near torturous for my waning, wake-before-dawn body,
so I hoped the sun might set early, just for us.
But it didn't. We'll try a different strategy next time.
