Raven awoke early and drank her coffee. She waited for Sun so she could eat breakfast in the valley. And waited. But Fog kept Valley hidden. Raven quorked the ancient language:

Sun answered, and Chokecherry Blossom rejoiced:

Wonderful post, ER! Enjoying the photos, and the idea that Raven brought Sun up from underneath the fog. Lovely idea.

I love how you used the Native American legend style to tell the tale. The photos are great, too.
Thanks for the link to "Since she started to ride." Cute song, and we hadn't heard it before.
