I don't know what a Reserve is, I do know trails though.
She said it was a good day to go because it had rained and the trails were closed to horses and bikes where we were going and that meant I didn't have to deal with MONSTERS!
I was so alert and so full of it that The Grandma put on a long line and my chain leash. I was pulling and charging a lot because every time an acorn dropped I was sure it was a squirrel. I kept staring up into the trees and watching for other Wild-ed Animals.
The Grandma was afraid I'd bolt and get away on the little leash so she had her long cord on me too. I never did bolt, but I sure did a lot of pulling in certain parts of the trail. I even tracked deer, coyote, and raccoon tracks!
The Grandma said she I gave her arms a good workout with my pulling.
I didn't care, I was having a good time. She also said that I was useful going up steep hills and if I stayed with her in the winter I could be her sled dog.
Neat. What is a sled dog? Charlie wasn't around to ask.
The trails went on and on and on! The Grandma said she knew where we were going even though I was the one leading. Several times I would have just gone off through the woods because I smelled very interesting things in the distance.
On one section of the trail the Grandma kept stopping because there were so many interesting tiny things.
I was really good about that. I sat next to her or tried to stand on top of her to see what she was looking at.
She had strange names for these things.

Oh oh oh! And there was so much more! But these little things really didn't interest me at all. I liked smelling much more. I took the time to watch the trees for squirrels.
I figured since the Grandma and I were out all by ourselves, I would need to protect her from the squirrels in case they attacked.
She probably needs protection from all the forest things! Which made me think which I can sometimes do......
How does Charlie protect her?
We finally made it back to the car.
...and before we left the parking area....
I hiked with the Grandma and survived the big scary wonderful woods!
I 'yam a Hiker too!
