Releasing Our Inner Squirrel
Also on vacation we want to an "adventure park," which is a ropes and climbing course strung in the trees, with obstacles, zip lines, and stuff like that. Here's a sign with the descriptions of the courses:
We started on yellow just to get going. Moved to green. And then my older daughter and I did the blue, while my younger daughter and wife did a second green course. The blue was pretty tough! As you can see, the harder the course, the higher up in the trees it goes - and I'm no fan of heights! But sometimes you just have to "pucker up" and do it, and it was a lot of fun. I was actually so focused on the obstacles that the height wasn't a problem, even on the zip lines. We ended in the dark and could do no more, but it might be fun to go back and try the single black diamond course in the future. I might be too old for the double diamond!
Here's a picture of my wife and daughter all geared up at a different, smaller course we went to earlier in the summer:
