Day 248 - Forest Adventure

Thought of the day: This afternoon, a friend's family took us to a forest adventure park at the foot of Mt. Rigi. We climbed up and down ladders, walked on wood planks and wires dangling high above the ground, and zipped through the forest. The courses we did were not particularly hard and there were minimal risks with the safety belays. However, the height at which we attempted the "stunts" made it all very exhilarating. For many a time, when I was on a shaky "ground" and stared down at the forest floor which seemed impossibly far away, I could feel my heart pounding and legs shaking. Alas, we did it all without a mishap, which was exactly as expected. To experience fear and conquer it alone can be indeed exciting. How much can you take and how far can you push yourself? I am sure this is a question that many of us long to find out.  An activity like this may give you some clues. And the best part? It may look or feel dangerous but it's really as safe as it gets. We can't wait to go back one day. Hopefully we'll have the time, and courage, for the more challenging courses next time.
