WalkingWiththeHerd_img1.gif Walking With the Herd
Every year, prior to the big excursion, Santa is able to take a reindeer for a practice / exercise. They could go anywhere in the world, and usually do.  This story is a collection of things Santa has seen and contemplated on these annual journeys.  One story involves finding a flower buried in a rare California snow, another deals with the beauty of stars on an open field, a third involves the sounds of carolers singing in a hay ride.
