Very nice work. I really enjoyed it.

Oh - I also loved the part about the crickets and cicadas.
What a great story! I especially liked: "One night around midnight a Presence urged Ruby to get out of bed."
God is always urging us to reach higher, often at great cost. The pilgrimage is worth every step, though.

Unique and effective piece with great descriptions. And I feel a bit like I took the journey with Ruby. I also think it would be cool to see this piece expanded beyond the 750 word count of the challenge.

Great allegory!! I felt like I was right along with her - and your descriptions for the different valleys and other characters were right on! I really enjoyed this!
Excellent allegory! Reminded me of "Pilgrim's Progress."
