We left the valley, but not for long. Tomas came to tell us that the trail ahead comes to an abrupt end. It was just fine when he checked yesterday. Now a cliff marks the end of the trail’s usefulness.
We returned to the valley to seek a new way out.
I stayed with Elijah and prayed while the others split up to better cover the possibilities.
Our focus was still northward, but if we were to exhaust all possibilities in that direction Elijah would prefer a westward trail that angles north.
At day’s end we collected for the night and compared notes. Two likely paths were also blocked.
Our concern is growing that an unseen agency is opposing us.
