Rathbone had gone to familiarise himself with the forest more. The guardian had noticed the steppe on a few patrols, but never actually went to explore them. He thought now might be as good a time as any. When he made it to the top, however, he realised right away it was more than just elevated earth. There were pools of water dotting across the land. Steam rose from some of them.
He had never seen anything like them. The best part of the land, was that he could see the entire sky. That was probably the downside to living beneath trees. Only parts of the sky were visible. In Auberon, the foliage was so thick it could practically block out the sun.
Crystal blue orbs took in the vast colours and shades of the dawn sky. It was clear. A sunny day. He would be sure to return to the caverns before it got too hot.
Rathbone found a nice grassy spot to settle down upon. His hind legs were tucked under him while his forelegs were stretched out, one crossed over the other. He placed his head on top of his legs with a mighty sigh while his eyes fluttered shut.
A lovely place for a well-deserved nap.
