Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Did I tell you about seeing chick-hens yet? Oh, right. OK, I did. Gotta put that behind me, right? Sorry. It. Was. Just. So exciting! Know what else was exciting? Walking all the way to The Top Of The World the other day! Mom took tons of pix, so Maggie said I should show you more. Especially since I don't have any more chick-hen pix.
OK, lot's of turf to cover, so I'll get right to it. Less chit-chat, more pix!
Here we are, at an exciting part of Hudson Trail:
"Oooh, steep trail! COOL!"
We were about to head down into a ravine! It was really cool! We hadn't taken that leg of the trail before!
This is Maggie, getting to choose the route:
|"Which way, Mags?"|
"Bear right ... then I think today's the day. Let's go all the way to The Top Of The World!"
"Wait ... what?"
Mags likes to stop and check things out along the route. I like to keep going!
"Hey, what's this?"
I'm a very good walker!
Here we are, making our way to The Top Of The World. Can you see the path on the upper left part of that hill? That's where we were headed!
|"Take the lead, Mags!"|
"Follow me, everyone!"
|"This is going to be a blast!"|
We showed you pix of us reaching the top the other day, so I'll skip ahead to the trails & road we hiked up there! First, we hit this trail:
...then this dusty road:
|"It's windy up here, Mags!"|
"Windy and wild! I love it!"
We walked all the way down to a lookout point:
It was super cool! After having a good look around, we turned back and headed back home. Mom and Dad spotted a path leading back home that didn't involve going down the cliff we walked up; for some reason, they didn't want to go down that steep, rocky hill. Whatever.
|"It would have been fun going down that cliff!"|
"True! But we get all new smells this way! AND it's longer!"
|"I think we're almost back to the trail we came in on!"|
"I think you're right, Ragnar!"
