Canopy Tour

We spent the first week of August in the White Mountains and we finally managed to complete one of the activities that we have been looking at for a while.  That was the canopy tour at Bretton Woods ski area near the Mount Washington hotel.

The canopy tour involves a series of zip-lines, rope bridges, and rappels between wooden platforms positioned in some very large trees.  After taking a chair lift to the top of the mountain the tour started off gently with some basic instruction.  It ended up with a 750-ft zip line about 100-ft in the air.  According tour guides we should have reached about 30-mph top speed!  We had great fun and before we knew it we were back at the bottom of the mountain.

Getting geared up!
