Scrapper with a Wanderlust

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

No new cards to display:   I have been away on an extended weekend in Colorado!  As hubby can attest to, I have fantasized and dreamed about white water rafting (WWR) for several years now.  In fact, a few years back our whole family went to Estes Park, CO and I tried to sign us up to WWR.  Well, that was a bad time to try and do it:  record high water levels with some fatalities and high minimum age requirements to participate (Emily wasn't old enough!).  Probably better for all of us that we didn't get to do it then.  Skip to now:  I've considered, thought about, and now have finally jumped in to DO IT!  Here's a couple pics of our ziplining experience.  We're only here for 3 days, and ziplined the first day with WWR the 2nd and 3rd day.  Pictures on WWR will come once we get back home and I get them on here! 

 Here I am!   The part that was pretty scary was the moment you had to take off.  Once zipping along, it was incredible....but making yourself take the "plunge" off the platform was really something....


 And here's Emily.  She seemed to be a natural at this and did really well learning how to control the whole thing.  In all, we did 6 "zips" on this trip, with speeds of 30 mph!  Keep watching in a day or so for pics of WWR....
