Leap of faith.
"We rented bicycles so we could bike to lunch. However, we went on a bit of an adventure by accident when we missed a turn. Several miles into our mistake, we turned around and finally made it to lunch... all quite hungry and ready for food and relaxation!

We decided to do the ropes course at the Squaw Valley Adventure Center. The kids loved hooking themselves into their harnesses and running all round the skies on ropes, wires, planks and ziplines. Chris and I also climbed the log tower at the end and jumped to a trapeze. I was worried my shoulder wouldn't be able to handle swinging, but my worry went out the window as I jumped for it. I know I swore, and while I'm not sure anyone else heard me, the screams in my head were very loud." -Diana
