Finally, we held our zipping experience at Mountain Ridge Adventure in Glenville. The day was cool and windy but at least it wasn't raining. Participation was high and eagerness was evident as we broke into 2 groups to get harnessed up and ready to attend ground school. We learned how to always be locked in to prevent any mishaps. It seemed confusing at first, lock, unlock, lock? But after a few times we got the hang of it and could move along. We began the course by climbing a few 20 foot plus ladders to get into the tree canopy. Then our zipping began. It was scary to take the first step off the platforms and be comfortable up high. Soon we were crisscrossing the ravine, and landing at the stations with finesse. It was fun to be with the group to cheer each other and assist when we could. For some this was an opportunity to shorten their bucket list. Of course it ended way too soon! But being the mighty Alpiners many reconvened at Wolf Hollow Brewery just up the road. Flights were sampled and good BBQ food enjoyed.
