When the snowcaps melted Koog and her family thawed out. Then they woke up, . . .
They traveled near and far in search of food. Ooopah hunted, and the others scavenged.
They found the new food strange and unsatisfying, the creatures odd and unusual, and the others of their kind, aloof.
As their first day in a new century closed, the family sought shelter. What they found was a campground.
Warming themselves around a warm fire was the perfect way to end the day, and Koog fell asleep under the blanket of bright stars.
