Thinking about crossing the marsh

Thinking about crossing the marshShe changed her mind and came across the path with us.

Crossing the bridge

Crossing the bridgeShe got hyped up after eating those ants and we took a long hike up the back trail.

Sniffing the treeShe went up that far them came back down though fell on her butt. Then she climbed back up and we got the video version.

Pua nearly escapes!

Could have edited it but, eh. Consider it a warning. A few mistakes, her tail was slippery from the mud, I didn't drop the camera the second her tail slipped, and her harness was too lose. Still the chest part of the harness acts like a belt so was still a good safety measure in place. She also did not get out of reach and I was able to pull her off the tree.

Took years to get to the point she gets to do as much as she does. At first she didn't get off the trails. Just wasn't quite careful enough this time.


Time to go home
