Costa Rica: Day 8 – Canopy Tour

An exhilirating way to enjoy the awesomeness of Costa Rica is a Canopy Tour. The one we took  – Witch’s Rock Canopy Tour – was a series of zip lines, ladders, trails and hanging bridges way high up in the tops of the trees. While we didn’t get to see Witch’s Rock, it was still amazing.

I psyched myself up for the trip by remembering how much fun I had at the ropes course I went to for Girl Scouts (somewhere in Indiana, mind you). But the second I was supposed to be hooked onto the line, my knees turned wobbly and my heart started racing. (What if I got stuck out there?) That feeling totally disappeared as I flew through the trees, over the gorge, past the monkeys and until I got to the next platform. Our guides, Luis and (I can’t remember!), were super-cool and made us feel like we were actually pretty good at this zip-lining thing. Until they zipped down the lines upside down or spinning around… but what a life that would be, hanging out in the forest to push tourists from platform to platform.
