Mt. Lemon in Tucson, Arizona is said to have the Red God of
Fire. This is a creature which walks the mountain whenever
heat lightning strikes the mountain in the form of red
lightning.

Submitter comment: A silly myth, of course everybody knows that light cannot
walk. The short story was still imaginative and somewhat
interesting.
