Zip Lining at Zoar

Today was the big day -- we finally got to go zip lining at Zoar's Deerfield Valley Zip Line.


The trip was well worth the wait -- it was fabulous! Dad, Lisa, Adam, and I again arrived in Charlemont. We put on the zip lining gear, which weighs just under ten pounds. (I checked with the guide.) We did the practice zip once more and then we were up the mountain for our three hour adventure. 

During our three hour trip, we did eleven zips, three propels (where they belay you), and crossed two sky bridges. We were up fairly high, in the trees, surrounded by green. The views were beautiful.

As you can see from the video, the zipping was a ton of fun. I didn't find it scary at all. The two guides take care of all your gear, so all you have to do is jump off the platform and glide through the air. You get to self break but are instructed how to do so and when. 

I loved every minute of flying through the open air!
