Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. We didn't get to go on a walk this morning due to an ice storm, but yesterday we went on a great one to The Top Of The World. We took a little bit different route to get there. We went out to the big road, up to where Hudson Trail starts!
|"Mags! We get to walk the whole length of Hudson Trail!"|
"This is so awesome!!!"
There are so many interesting smells along Hudson Trail; it's one of our favorite places! Before too long, we got to the "open prairie" part of the trail. Here's Mags:
|"We should go all the way to The Top Of The World!"|
|"Great idea, Mags! Let's hope Mom and Dad buy into it!"|
"Oh, they will. They can't say 'no' to me. Especially Dad."
And she was right! We hooked into the Washington Marlatt trails, then went down the road to hook into the trails that lead up to The Top Of The World!
|"How do you get Dad to say 'yes' all the time, Mags?"|
"It's one of my magical gifts. It'll work for you, too. Try it!"
|"The woods are that way. Oh, I hope we get to walk through the woods!"|
"Me, too. I love the woods!"
Dad said we needed to take a different route on the way out due to a guy with a loose dog, so we headed up one of the other paths to get to the top. I totally understood that - but I was hoping we could do the woods on the way home.

We got to the top and had a good look around:
|"I think I can see Missouri! Our homeland, Mags!"|
"I'm looking at Colorado!"
Then Mags said to try again, asking about going through the woods. At first, Dad didn't want to go that way because he said "certain members of the family go crazy in there" and there are all kinds of roots to trip over. Huh. We all know I walk really nicely on a lead, so I'm assuming he meant the girls - Mags and Mom. Anyway, I summoned all my powers ...
|"Oh, please, Dad! Oh, please, oh, please, oh, please!"|
|"Me? I'm Ragnar Jimmysson. I'm always good!"|
|"THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!!"|
"I KNOW! I LOVE THIS!!!!!"
