He went into the west end to follow up on some leads gleaned from his conversations with Grazie.
Grazie and I hiked out to the vineyard early. There, as before she stood guard while I ventured out to explore the ways down to the desert floor. After some searching I found the narrow track again.

At last, I reached the bottom. From there the track divided into two paths.
I could sense our future.
