The Little Boy and Girl in the Clouds

"Where are we?" they said sleepily. Looking around with alarm they saw clouds and birds surrounding them on all sides. Measuring Worm assured the children they would be fine, and urged them to follow him down a path through the ridges in the rock. Soon the girl and boy safely reached to the ground.

And so with great joy the children and their parents were re-united. Ever since, the Miwok people called the magic rock Tutokanula, their word for Measuring Worm, in honor of the smallest of creatures who had managed the greatest of deeds.
