the mountains here rise high and swiftly up. the cliffs are impassable by human foot. but goats, evolved from generation to generation, chew on the green moss that grows on the steep cliff sides. their hooves are small and their balance is perfect for climbing such dramatic inclining walls.
at the bottom of a cliff, balancing over the precipice of another ledge, is a small white house with clouds of smoke puffing up out of the chimney. there are not many houses among these cliffs. paths are narrow and winding and long. goats have a much easier time getting food.
