What it's like to be Roo


I'm not up to hiking Roo, so she's stuck on a trail where I can ride the bike. In the course of 50 minutes and just under four miles, Roo charged through a river six times, chased a deer, dug for whoever it is she's after in the accompanying picture and saw other animals that I couldn't see running through the desert, including two who scared her from a great distance. Even that was fun for her.

I should quit worrying about the hike being second-rate for her. She turns them into adventures, no matter what.
