Swingin' from the treetops

Today was not the perfect knitting day, it was the perfect day for a visit to the Aerial Park at Lafleche Caves. My friend Ken and I drove up there first thing in the morning, and from 9:00 till noon we were swingin' from the treetops.

The Aerial Park is this crazy obstacle course / playground up in the top of the forest. You use clips and a harness to keep you from plunging to your death as you navigate rope nets, suspended footbridges, wooden aerial tunnels, swinging stirrups, swaying tightropes, tarzan ziplines, a flying skateboard, and more.

There are four courses, each more challenging than the last. The final course is more thrilling than difficult, because you get to zip across the lake twice.

There's always some poor wimpy soul gets paralyzed with fear and cries until the guide rescues them. I thank god it's not me - I would have to disown any friend who witnessed me in such a pathetic state, lol. Besides, if I were to dissolve into tears, most of my friends would laugh till they fell out of the tree.

Aerial Park sounds like so much fun! I'd love to attempt to go through all the different courses. Zipping across the lake sounds especially fun!

You're absolutely right, the zipline across the lake was the highlight of the whole experience. If you ever get a chance to go to one of these places, I highly recommend it.
