This silly knight, pushing a pram, was following Sir Galahad. Early on, however, he realized this was a terrible place to bring a pram! The pram slipped from the knight’s grasp and rolled down a small hill toward the waterfall overlook but, before reaching it, veered off to the left. It slowed briefly on a flat landing, and the knight was relieved to see it take the level path on the left. It soon became clear that this path was not level at all, and the pram sped off down a steep hill, out of control, until it clunked along a bunch of rocks at the bottom and crashed into a tree in its path, stripping off most of the bark.

Armor clanking, the knight finally caught up to the pram and rescued the frightened infant inside. They walked on the path to the right for a few steps and, when they came to a fork, took the right path, even though it looked rather forbidding with several downed trees blocking their way. They clanked and wailed – and wailed and clanked -- for 31 steps until the knight decided he had better stop and find a place for them both to rest and calm down after their harrowing ordeal. To their right was a “spill” of rocks down the embankment. The knight took two steps into the rock spill, and on his left noticed a tall, leaning cedar tree with a pile of moss--covered rocks in front of it. Among these soft-looking rocks, he saw a nice resting place. He lifted up the flat-topped rock and laid the baby gently inside.

To see an awesome natural rock bridge, take the path to the left of the pram crash. You’ll have to walk on the flat, rocky riverbed for a bit, but look up. You’ll know it when you see it!
