Children of the Sky

This interestingly colored stone reminded me of the photos of outer space, and following that theme, I remembered the legend of Bear Lodge, (Devilís Tower). One legend tells how a group of girls escaped being mauled by a huge bear by jumping on a mound that rose up and up and deposited them where they were safe from danger and became part of the night sky. Native tales tell about the sky people, and I just imagined that this group of mothers and children must be a part of those celestial beings.
