You decide to steer the sled right. You avoid the briar patch by a few inches, nearly flipping over into a shallow ditch, and then holding tight as you descend for another ten feet before the trail bends left. You pass another trail but it goes by too swiftly; you will have to explore it on the way back up…..
The grade of the hill levels slightly and the sled is becoming harder to move; it soon stops altogether, twenty feet away from a stone monument. The trail has stopped here; grass has taken over and a thick wall of young tall ash trees surround the clearing where the large stone resides.
All around you is grass except for the monument and the forest. There is a faint sound of water to your left but it is some way off. The woods are in front and to your left; grass and weeds are to your right, getting taller in the distance. The trail you passed by is way behind you but can still be seen.
You have several options before you but ultimately you must go back up the trail…….
**This is the crossroads where paths are woven,
Now is the place of a road newly chosen.**
*Go Back Up the Trail
*Go Right and Explore the Water
