The "A View From Above Challenge"















I'm finally up for a photo challenge. This week Charmine http://www.travelyestravel.blogspot.com/ is hosting the http://www.brendaphotochallenge.blogspot.com/ The first photo was taken from a swinging bridge at Jay Cook state park. I take alot of shadow pictures. And the shadow actually gives photo evidence of an "above" shot. Like standing on a bridge, hanging from a tree or floating on a cloud. Ha! The next two pictures are taken in Costa Rica. We Ziplined at Sky Tram and it was quite an adventure. First you take the tram up to the top. Then Zipline down. After two practice runs just a few feet off the ground. The third run is a frightning 600 feet off the ground! And gulp...one lady did not make it across. She slowed down to a complete stop and had to be rescued. Yikes, I was so scared that would happen to me. But it didn't. But this is what happens when you press your luck. We went Ziplining again this year at Aventuras del Sarapiqui and it did happen to me! Luckily the run wasn't quite as high and I pulled myself in. Whew!

Hi Sharon,

How brave of you to stand on that hanging bridge! You know I was also going to post a photo of ziplining adventure in the forest but I changed my mind, but maybe I'll post it one of these days. Did you have fun? I bet!
