Name three other species of pine or spruce trees? With breakfast nished, Peggy's mother shut the cabin door and the three explorers set off on their walk. Their neighbor, Mrs. Foster, was sitting on her porch. Peggy's mother invited her to go with them. Laying down her knitting needles, Mrs. Foster joined the hiking party. She was a wonderful guide, telling the newcomers how to get down to the main road and where each trail led into the woods. She said that hiking in the woods was safe. There were no bears, mostly deer or rabb!ts - or maybe a goat. She even showed them paint marks on the trees. The marks were there to help anyone who did beck)me lost. The marks were shaped like little arrows, and they all pointed to the road that went by the cabins. Peggy's mother felt better when she learned about the red marks. Several times, Mrs. Foster pointed out the faces of Washington and Jefferson. From each spot the faces looked different. Mrs. Foster said the mountain was called Mount Rushmore. The men who worked up there were called Keystone Boys. As they walked through a meadow, Peggy looked at the hillsides. They did look black. Mrs. Foster said that was because most of the trees were Ponderosa pine or Black Hills spruce. The bark of young pines is black and all the pine needles are dark, Mrs. Foster said. She also pointed out that the spruce trees are dark, too. All the dark trees growing together gave the hills their name, she said. At last Peggy had the answer to her question. Just as the hikers came within sight of their cabins, Mrs. Foster pointed to a little road that led down to the old Potter place. Mrs. Foster said that old Mrs. Potter was a strange kind of person. She never bothered anyone. In fact, she was very good to people. She just liked keeping to herself. Peggy didn't think that was so strange. Some people liked being alone. Peggy even liked being alone once in a while. If she ever got to meet that old lady, Peggy was sure they would get along just fine.
