Tacey M. Atsitty It was on their second lap around Tsézhinii'áhí when the skies rapidly darkened. Late May and Red Valley hadn't yet had much rain. But it was always this way. Always dry, even up to the tips of the mountains. Rain, when it does storm, falls so briefly in the valley that within the length of a day the fresh pools are taken up in lone clouds.

He often imagined the rock as a monster's thumb from the earlier days. That perhaps the monster was hitchhiking somewhere and then along came Naayéé Neeszghání, who sliced his thumb as he ran by. He smiled as he thought of his oldest daughter, Pepper, and how she became fascinated with sticking out her thumb on the roadside, moving it back and forth, yelling at trucks as they zoomed by, Goin' my way? It became the only way she wanted to travel. He usually made the team run around the rock
