The caves were Anna and Bell. This was Anna, wasn't it? He was pretty sure it was Anna; he'd start out that way anyway. If one of the turns looked wrong he could always come back and do it over...assuming he still had light. This was no text adventure game-this was for real!
He wondered why he hadn't separated the two maps and left one of them out in the motor home. They were stapled together, printed out in his office from one big file. Big letters had been carved in the rock outside of the cave showing which one was Anna and which one was Bell. They were around the mountain from each other, and he could just picture that palindrome "Anna," couldn't spell it backwards, could you?
They'd come back down here after him if he didn't show in a few minutes. But wait, there was only one set of maps, and he had them. There was no hope for his cell phone, but he took it out and tried it just to make sure.

It was a better work-out by far.
Rebel, her horse, a Palomino gelding, was a gentle soul demanding only some TLC whenever she visited. She took extra care grooming his velveteen, golden flanks and went over his hooves and combed out his mane and tail twice to make sure both were free of tangles and dirt. Then she stood with him, caressing his warm nose, letting his lips tickle her palm as she fed him a few carrots.
After leaving Rebel, she logged in her stable time and signed out at the office, waving good-bye to her brother. He covered the mouthpiece of his phone, and mouthed, "Good ride?
