Recreation blooms on the bluffs

Wildflowers are bursting into their spring bloom in the region’s lowlands. The next few weeks are prime time for golden arrowleaf balsamroot flowers and wedding-white serviceberry blossoms to greet the throngs of hikers, bikers, runners and dog walkers on the 23 miles of trails along the South Hill bluff between High Drive and Hangman Creek. Much of the crowd shows up after work hours and packs in their exercise before sometimes stunning sunsets bring the evening to a close. Outdoors editor Rich Landers often is there, with his hiking boots and camera.
