Before the family arrives at the camping spot, Tommy experiences firsthand the enormously large Northern New Mexico Wilderness Mountains.

In finding his perfect hiding spot he encounters a mysterious tree stump. This stump steals a lunch that Tommy’s mother had prepared for him while he sets up his blind- hiding spot. In closely examining the tree stump Tommy finds a discovery of scratching, screeching noises that are coming from within the tree stump.
