What An Adventure, Part 2!

 Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Given how many pix our mom took of yesterday's adventure, Maggie and I are going to take actually 3 days to fill you in on everything.  Mom was a little shutter-happy, if you know what I mean.  Anyway, when Maggie signed off yesterday, we were about to head down a giant hill!

The hill was grassy and wet from the dew, which made it a little slippery and a bit muddy!  Mags and I especially liked the muddy part.  Apparently, Mom doesn't like going down a steep, slippery hill while taking pix, so here we are at the bottom:  

"Wowzers, was that ever fun!"
"That was the BEST!"

On the way up the equally steep, slippery hill, I helped Mom take a shot of some Sunflowers:

"How's this, Mom?"
"Yeah, umm ... OK.  Thanks, Ragnar."

Here are some random shots of Mags and me hiking along the trail:



We both spent a lot of time with our snooters to the ground because wow, are there ever a lot of cool smells out there on the trail! 

Here's a great action shot, even if it isn't straight:

Mags and me - in action!

The only drawback to this part of the Hudson Trail (other than getting our feety-feet wet and muddy and all) was loose dogs. Fortunately for us, the ones we ran into were friendly. I mean the dogs.  The people with them ... not always the case.  That's their problem; Mom and Dad said we were VERY GOOD PUPPIES.

"Halt!  Who goes there?"
"Yeah!  And whoever you are, want to be friends?!?"

I like to check back with Mom during our walks, because ... I don't know.  But I like to check on her.

"Everybody OK back there?"
"Wait!  I see a bunny!"
Mom wasn't quick enough to get the bunny in the photo.

Up another great hill and more good snoofies:


We eventually came out onto a dirt road. Mom actually knew where we were, which, given her sense of direction, surprised us all!

"Oh, yeah, wait.  We've driven this route.  Right, Mom?"
"Right, Mags!"
"Wherever we are, I like it!"

"It says 'The Washington Marlatt Memorial Park'!"

Maggie said we were right by a place called The Top Of The World and that it's really cool there.  She hasn't been there in a long time, but Dad said once it gets cool, and at the rate our walks have been going, we could walk there!  Won't that be awesome!!??!!

Anyway, that's enough for today!  More of our adventure tomorrow!



  1. That sure is a nice wide path that is mowed for you to walk on. Too bad about the bad owners with loose dogs. We're glad none of them caused you any trouble.

  2. You two have so much energy. We would sleep for a month if we did that.

  3. This really is quite the adventure!!! You were so lucky to get to go through the muddy part. Our Mom would have said, sorry, time to turn back, no mud for her:)

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  4. great pics of your adventure Ragnar. the Hudson Trail is a gem. You or Maggie should get a GoPro or such and take your own pictures :)
    We do hope you'll make it to TTotW soon and share with us :)

  5. Wow, that looks like an absolutely fangtastic walk!! I like to check on Momma during walks too, Ragnar. You just have to monitor them to make sure they're okay and haven't dropped their walking string or anything.
