Last weekend on one of our hikes, Nala gave me cause to wonder: is she a dog, or is she a mountain goat?
I’m not sure whether goats like to get their feet wet, but she was leaping in and out of the creek despite having to clear a rock ledge that was nearly taller than she is
My favorite, though, was later, when we came to the same steep, rocky, yet scale-able bit of cliff as we had taken a couple of weeks ago when Nala did her very best to lay down for me.
Nala leapt confidently up the first part, then, instead of taking the steps, tried to climb a wall straight up! I was really worried, but decided not to say anything–I knew she would fall if she looked back at me, so I bit my tongue, held my breath, and watched her somehow haul herself up a vertical surface.
I love hiking with Nala. She always surprises me with how she decides to take on the world.
