We passed into very familiar territory last night. By tomorrow we should be back in the hiding place.
Some things raised concerns and momentarily threw us off our stride. For instance, once we had to find another route when the normal one through a canyon had a collapsed wall. The debris had blocked off all access.
It had not been that way when Reuben last passed through.
And it was eerie to tiptoe around the abandoned army outposts that before had complicated movements in and out of the hiding place.
Tomas surmised that all army personnel have been collected into the valley of decision for the battle we all know is coming.
Thoughts about that coming event intruded my rest.
