This may be the place Shadow was born. It’s in an area of amazing granite boulders, cliffs, natural shelters, and little visitation by people. Cougars lurk among the intricate formations and I’ve chosen this remarkable spot for the fantastical birth of a cub to a mother dying of a gunshot wound. Meera’s psychic ability to communicate with wild animals brought her here at nightfall when she discovered the newborn cub with its disabled mother. The next day Meera returned with water, food, and medicine. Watch for their stories in Sleeping with Coyotes.
