We walked down our hills to the big road, then kept going up, up, and up. It was great. We finally turned in and went all the way to a street we've only been to a few other times. Here we are:
|"Wowzers, Cam! Check it out!"|
"Oh, how WONDERFUL!"
Can you see the name of the road? Let's get a bit closer - and maybe take a quick pose-break.
|Me and Cam - in front of Snowy Reach!|
Snowy Reach! Is that a great name for a road or what?!?! We looked down the road as we crossed it, and sadly, there was no snow.
|"What a cruel hoax!"|
Anyway, as you can see, the roads are nice and wide! There are no sidewalks, but not much traffic, so you have plenty of room to move over to the other side - like if some cranky woman with a couple of dogs is barreling right toward you.
|"I wonder why Mom didn't take a picture of Miss Crank-enstein?"|
Anyway, no pictures of that woman ... you know, what with her being cranky and all. But as I said, there was plenty of room for us to avoid her.
Eventually, we came to a sidewalk - I think it's a school zone or something there. Anyway - look! I lost my head!
|"Hey, Cam! I lost my head!"|
"Oh, no, Maggie!"
|"Ha roo roo roo! Just kidding!"|
"I really didn't want to have to go back and look for it!"
Did I mention we had walked pretty far by that time? And it seemed like the whole thing was up hill? It was. Anyway, we went up another hill, then were back at the main road. Instead of heading down the hill then heading home, Mom wanted to go UP the hill. Why? That's what I had to wonder. My first thought was that she had lost her mind. Pretty sure that's what Cam was thinking, too.
|"I just don't get her sometimes ..."|
"Mags, I think she's lost it! Or maybe she's just lost ..."
Mom said she wanted to cross the street because the grass on our side of the big road was WAY too long and "a certain someone kept trying to eat it". Hey. Has she never heard the expression "I am a Siberian Husky and the world is my salad bar"?!? I think my great-sister Stormy came up with that one. But I digress -- the only real place to cross the street before the tall grass was up at the light - so that's what we did.
|"Hey, Mom. The grass is mighty tall over on this side, too!"|
"I thought the grass was supposed to be greener. Or something like that."
But hey, at least we were finally walking down hill. For a while, anyway.
|"Hey, look! Jim's got his boat out!"|
"You know his wife calls this 'Heart Attack Hill', right?"
Yeah. So we struggled up that last hill to home. When we arrived back at Ao4 Headquarters ...
Yep! Nothing like a round of Crazed River Otter Games to cap off a long walk!
I hope you had as much fun as Cam and I did! Thanks for coming with us! Now, c'mon! Drinks are on me!
