    He climbed up the rocky mountain, flashbacks of their journey returning to him when they had to climb the mountains for what seemed like an eternity... *And, of course, the herds of cattle,* he thought to himself, staring at the Bighorned(?) sheep and their sharp, heavy hooves...* he continued climbing, and spotted a pond with cutthroat trout and salamander. He swiftly scooped a paw in the water, quick as a flash, and pulled out a trout. Wolfclaw snapped its spine and took a huge, hungry bite.

    Sorry I'm so late! I don't know the order for the borders, so I'm posting here first. Hopefully that's okay!)) Echoflight followed Seafire and Coalflare into the moutains. She breathed in the scent of the rushing wind and felt the cool stone beneath her pads. *This is where RainClan might be able to live. As long as it's got trees...* she looked around, nimbly stepping over and around loose stones. She catches sight of trees in the distance and breathed a sigh of releif. *Good. But there is something that feels slightly off...* Echoflight thought with great suspicios, stopping instantly. Stones started to slide off the ledge of the path thingy-ma-jiggy. "Fox dung!" She hissed, springing over the newly formed gap. "Well that's just great." She muttered under her breath. The black and gray she-cat sprang back to the other side, trotting back to the other cats on the patrol and continued on. She spotted a large bighorn sheep and squinted. Her eyes widened as it climbed the steep mountainside on the opposite side of the vally. *Wow. I hope those horns aren't to dangerous. Or if they are carnivorous.* The RainClan cat thought. "Well those cloud-sheep are strange." She murmered when she joined back up with the group. *Nice for us...maybe.* She thought as she looked around, feeling quite at home in these mountains. ((Was this good??))

    She pads along, possibly a little more confident then she should have been. When she pads onto the rocky slopes, she kicks stones out of her path, making scattering noises across the rocks.A large shape emerges from a cave on the same side she just happened to be prancing past. It sniffs the air and she finally realizes wgat she has done. She scampers away, reaching somewhere the beast could not reach her before pausing to rest. She sniffs the air deeply, accumulating the scents of large predators such as the couager and many small mammals such as mice and an ocasional vole. She also sees the eagles and hawks circle overhead and yet, very few herbs. She continues, more cautious, and passes many small streams and a rare pond as she enters the gradually sloping hills.

    Seafire comes to the mountain and almost immediatly slips. "Mousebrain," he hisses to himself. "Be careful." He looks around and his heart sinks. He sits down, refusing to climb the mountain, and tries to see around. He notices that there is not as much predator scent, but plenty of water and prey. He sees a hawk far off in the sky, but it won't come any nearer to the strange new prey. (Shortest one yet... sorry.)

    He struggled to climb up the mountain an clumsly made his way around. It was nice and secretive, and good for cats. But it was also chilly.

    I- nevermind. Sorry, just a little sidetracted, busy typing long posts.)) He almost says "because you're the idiot who left camp alone," but his mouth stays shut. After a few more minutes, the tom pulls away from her, letting her go. An eery grin is on his face, as he steps away slowly. And as if he had never been here in the first place, he disappears behind a row of rocks....After several moments, the echo of his footsteps disappear into thin air- he was gone... (Annnnd. Bye...)

    It's okay, l've been trying to see how long it took for my ds to shut off. Finally died :) )) Cryst was fully in tears as Elre disappeared, not entirely sure what happened. When she finally cooled enough, she rose, her eyes red from the tears. Wiping the blood from her neck, she slowly cleaned it, covering it with some marigold, but no cobwebs. Collecting a few more flowers, the tabby moved on, sore and hurt. (Ew! Stinkbug was in my bed by my head. *shiver*)

    |Rainclan| <br />

    <br />

    To the south of Slough Creek rises the sharp ridges of a mountain steeper than the other surrounding mountainous areas of Ashclan and Northclan. The rough ground is covered with rocks that conceal moss and large stony outcrops. Crevices and ledges line the sides of the slope, manageable only for those with skilled and sure footedness. Between two of the steepest peaks is a pond that supports frogs and salamanders and Slough Creek flows past the mountain as it exits the meadow with its supply of cutthroat trout. The cliffs of this area are known as Canyon Cliffs and they are covered with spruce and lodgepole pine. Juniper, sedge, and huckleberry make up the sparse undergrowth while wildflowers such as silky phacelia bloom from cracks in the rock. Farther west in the territory, the gentler slopes of Saddle Meadow also include aspen in the forest. Many different types of prey reside on the mountain sides including pika, marmot, woodrat, ground squirrels, flycatchers, ravens, warblers, bluebirds, chickadees, and sparrows. Many species of bats also roost in caves found in the mountain. The only hoofed grazer here is the bighorn sheep, which leaps from ledge to ledge in small groups. This land has fewer predators, the main ones being the wolverine and hawk. However, though never seen in the area before, this is an ideal habitat for cougar should one ever stumble across it. Cats who enjoy stone beneath their paws and cool mountain breezes will easily adapt to this place though. <br />

    Hey everyone! Just clarifying the borders of each clan with a little narrative. All of this information has been researched to exact detail. I could even put specie names but that would be too confusing. So please stick to the animals and plants you see on the list for your territory (besides herbs and birds). For example, even though Rainclan is more restricted in what kinds of wildlife it can come into contact with, it has a tougher environment to live in, which helps make up for it. Remember to patrol your borders daily and attack another clan by posting here and then at their camp. Feel free to have a border crisis now and again to spice things up! <br />
