Two Teens Going Tree-to-Tree

I have two phobias that are somewhat related. The first is a fear of descending escalators. The second is a fear of heights, or to be more precise, falling from said escalators and heights. So when my fifteen year old granddaughter, Dominique, and her friend Sophia, asked me to join them on a tree-to-tree adventure at the Tallahassee Museum and Zoo I politely declined. Instead I offered to document parts of their adventure through photographs. Thankfully, they accepted my counter offer.

Here are Dominique (left) and Sophia being fitted with their harnesses:

Ready to go:

The rest are self explanatory. I couldn’t cover the complete two hour course which went across swamps and over animal enclosures, but I did get a few pictures and videos of their adventure.

The tree-to-tree course looks fun. There’s a part of me that would love to try it for myself. But it’s an incredibly small part and I’ve shoved it way down deep inside where it will never see the light of day.

The girls, however, came through with flying colors. I’ll just live vicariously through them. It’s safer that way.

Peace, people.

      1. Lol…Ha ha. If only. I was just so smiling at your honest and your courage actually at NOT putting yourself in a situation to look good to the family. Seeing the girls on the rope reminded me of that time in Glencoe where the MR. against my express suggestion… okay instruction, do not go up that bit there without a rope, climbed on this rock, got stuck, so then ..then we had to go a different way and ended up coming down hundreds of feet clinging to a deer fence over drops you would not want to know about… I’m planning our forthcoming trip here and I have this list of hills and after that experience, I have taken one google look at each and crossed them off again…
