My Zip-Lining Adventure

Jerry Allocca

I have to admit, nothing creates memories (or mini heart attacks) faster than an above-the-trees cruise through a beautiful blue sky, with beautiful scenery all around you.

Zip-lining is something I always wanted to do, so during a recent trip upstate…we decided to give it a shot.

Here’s how it works:

Zip-lining is a ride through the sky on a cable that ends at a lower altitude than where it begins. Thus, the “whheeeeee” factor.

Once we got suited up with the proper zipping equipment…

…we climbed up to the top of a tower to our zip-lining starting points. Yup, alllllllll the way up there.

At the top we got hooked into the zip-line…

…and took off into the sky!

Here’s that “whheeeeee” factor I told you about…

Let’s go again!!

Have you ever been zip-lining?
I’d love to hear your experience with it!
