Sunday we set out for a leisurely hike to the top of Little Mt. Si. Somebody forgot to send Gretel the memo.
Seriously, I think I threw out my shoulder from her constantly pulling on my arm for 4 miles. If we had been going any faster on the way up I would have been sprinting.
Gretel is quite the acrobat and was clearing the 2-foot ledges with grace. I can’t say the same for me. While trying to catch her scrambling up the steep, rocky sections on video I about did a face plant. I swear the two-foot ledge looked much smaller on the camera screen at high-speed. (And indeed it does look much smaller in the video than it was I swear. You can watch the video on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/YouDidWhatWithYourWeinercom/134301133293767)
Gretel was probably running so fast because she mistook my heavy breathing for being chased a wild animal. If you had heard me you would be scared too. It’s either that or she was trying to break me.
