Gray foothills, round and billowy, rolled down from the higher country. They were smooth, sweeping, with long velvety slopes and isolated patches of aspens that blazed in autumn gold. His gait on that edge of steep slope proved his rider to be a reckless cowboy for whom no heights or depths had terrors.
