The Spirit River. A place of solitude and the crossing of paths. Listen to the Wind of the Owls and choose your path. A placard sits by the bridge and the reading thereof learns you the way. This river flows from the sluice between its northern end and the northeastern, battled bog – Nightmire – and gathers in a basin southwest of the Spirit River Bridge, around the bend, in Skull Garden. Southeast of Spirit River is the rift beneath the grand canopy, Beguna Valley. Mushrooms sprout on its northern bank, spored by the fungal grove northwest, across the broken bridge – Varden Vale.
