Farther west from Horseclan's camp, near the crest of the hills of the Upland Meadow, stands a thin grove of lodgepole pines. These tall, straight trees, vulnerable mainly only to wildfire, manage to grow in the rocky soil here while the sparse undergrowth includes elk sage and grouse whortleberry. Herbs such as dock, honeysuckle, tansy, goldenrod, chervil, comfrey, borage, and burdock root can be found throughout this stand of trees. The scattered collection of pines also provides shelter for a host of unique creatures. Prey including cottontails, mice, shrews, grouse, ravens, and bluebirds all make this grove their home. Strange creatures such as porcupines can also be spotted among the branches of the lodgepoles or wandering between their trunks. Black bears and foxes are the most prevalent predators here though wolves are also known to travel through and eagles enjoy perching in the trees. These pines provide a slight change in scenery for Horseclan and help buffer some of the strong wind that whips over the plains. They are a valuable piece of land that the cats of the plains greatly appreciate. ~ The Lodgepole Grove, Lilywolf <br> <br>
