CHAPTER 4 - RANGER RIDING

and muscle. But let the occasion arise and he would grow taut and alert quickly enough.
The occasion did arise, unexpectedly, within another mile. He turned a bend in the trail which still amongst the mountains was edged on either side by steep rocky slopes and he saw something that interested him. The alkali dust lay thick. Round the bend Bill saw freshly made hoof-prints, prints which had been made very recently by a pony moving from the direction of the foothills, the outcrops and Black Creek. But these prints did not continue along the trail Bill had already traversed ; they turned off the track on the Black Creek side of the bend and disappeared in a narrow cleft, hardly wide enough for a pony, a cleft in the sheer rock on the eastern side of the trail.
There was no particular reason why Bill should be interested, except that he was interested in pretty nearly everything out of the usual run. These prints fell into that category he reckoned, for two reasons. In these latitudes the sun sank swiftly. Within half an hour of beginning to set it was dark, or as dark as it ever was at this time of the year. Yet very recently a pony, obviously from the set of the prints ridden, not riderless, had come this way striking into the mountains, even though the sun would be gone very shortly. That interested Bill Rankin, for it was out of the ordinary that anyone should aim for the mountains so soon before nightfall. The other unusual factor was that the rider had turned off the trail into the cleft which struck deep into the face of the cliff, a narrow cleft which at first sight at all events seemed to grow narrower as it proceeded.
Even riding slackly Bill's eyes had picked up the prints very quickly, and now the slackness had gone.
