A broken and abandoned hay cart and its precious cargo of supplies are discovered by these woodland Indians. The hay cart is not designed for hauling supplies much less a trip down a backwoods stream. What caused the settlers to decide to make such an ill-prepared winter’s journey down such an arduous path? Such questions certainly entered these warriors’ minds, but taking stock of the bounty they have come across on this fine winter’s morning is the first order of business.
