Day Six Hundred Ninety #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Tomas returned after one of his side jaunts. He had come upon a section of this mountain that in his estimation we should avoid at all costs.

An enormous crater spans the area between our side of the range and the next ridge that would be our desired destination.

Though judging by its topography we would be able to cross it easily, he is convinced it is a radiated area about which we’ve been warned.

A cloud of fine rock dust floats in a continual agitation above the crater, and one can sense a source of heat somewhere beneath its screen.

Elijah decided then and there, that we must descend down into the pass itself.

Even if we must backtrack.

Tomas found a way up to a part of the range that opened onto a high tableland. It made our going much easier.  Though we did lose track of the army moving down below because our trail led far away from the edge.

We were all alone except for the high flying birds of prey. One in particular kept a wary eye on us as he circled on a thermal overhead. As we continued forward, without faltering, it lost interest and caught another thermal that spun it away from us.

Along the way I recited the Word to the Captain to help him internalize it into his being. And he in turn read aloud the Gospels of Yeshua to me.
