How is that for a title? But it does sum up a very long day.
We took off this morning for the Chickamauga Battlefield, as recommended by our pals Scout and Freyja. It was great because there were lots and lots of trails. The coolest part though was that Natasha was able to pick out a souvenir that she wants to take home in order to maintain control of The Herd:
Can I have it, dad, please?
When we got back to the RV area, our humans decided we needed a little more walk, so we went from the hotel down to the river front and back – another 3 miles of hiking. We got to meet lots of interesting people who sit out on park benches and drink smelly stuff from bottles in paper bags. Oh, yeah, we are supposed to be showing you the scenery.

Rusty doing the tourist picture pose
We should explain Rusty, if we could. When we walk, Rusty must explore everything. So as we walked down city streets, Rusty ran up and down every flight of steps, climbed planters, and generally acted like a good country dog in awe with a city. This was one of many pictures we made of Rusty being Rusty.
And as we were back at the hotel out for our final walk of the day – you know, the business walk – we ran into Thor, Marco Polo and their mom as well as Sue and one of the Barbarians. Pretty cool, huh?

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
