Adventures on the Gorge

Well, today I checked another adventure off of my bucket list… Zip-lining at the New River Gorge in West Virginia! This is definitely a great place to conquer your fear of heights or your fear that the worst is going to happen (ala Final Destination). But we survived!! No cable snapping or falling out of the harness, just pure euphoria after jumping off of the side of a mountain.  The longest zip-line that we rode was 3170 ft in length (the attached picture is from the top of this line) and per the guide is the longest zip-line east of the Mississippi River. I would definitely recommend trying this if you are ever in the area.

  1. absolutely incredible!
    I have a crippling fear of heights – so even reading this terrifies. But I can imagine the pure elation though when you’ve jumped!
