The war has been rough. Each night as I sit alone, scanning the
scenery, I think back to when you would whisper in my ear as we lay beneath the stars. Of your flowing words, only droplets remain, as I fear I am losing my mind each day I am away from you.
All that keeps me going are my sketches. Oh how you loved to

Once you reach the second gulley, turn and walk across the dunes in front of you. After turning again, then you must stop right after you reach the midpoint of the second gulley you encounter.
After you reach the second gulley that lies beyond the first set of dunes, turn and traverse the dale directly in front of you. You may only stop once you reach another gulley.
First you must cross the prairie that lies beyond the second set of cliffs. Then turn and cross the next set of dunes. Turn and stop when you reach the end of the mesa.
