The Blue Pass, which runs through the Vale of Tone between Mount Timor and Mount Tinnabin, is the route caravans take out of Tai-tastigon through the Ebonbane. Jame and Marc took this route out of the city.
Usually, the pass is open all Spring and Summer, from the Feast of Fools to the Feast of Dead Gods. However, sometimes it is much shorter than that, and in God Stalk it is open for only two weeks.
- ↑ God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 6: Water Flow, Fire Leap" — "The passes usually cleared soon after the Feast of Fools, which took place just after Spring's Eve, and remained open until the Feast of Dead Gods at the end of the summer. This year, however, the readers of bones had predicted a remarkably short season, lasting perhaps a matter of weeks or less."
- ↑ God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 8: Voices of the Past" — "On the tenth and fourteenth days respectively, the second and third caravans left. From the loft, Jame watched first one and then the other ascend into the Vale of Tone by the River Road and vanish into the shadows of the Ebonbane. […] Soon after that, snow fell among the peaks again. […] True to predictions, the season had closed after only two weeks."
