Zippin' Down the Valley

I woke up this morning in a beautiful room at the Glynmill Inn in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. We knew that a storm was coming, and forecasts were bang on when I looked out the window—pouring rain. Dave and I are thinking the same thing: are we still going ziplining?

I make a quick call to Marble Zip Tours (MZT) just to confirm, and they let me know we're good to go, great! This is going to be awesome. Well, let me tell you, I could write a two-page description of this experience, but my words would not do it justice. Once we were there, Reg Flynn and Daniel Kean set us up with safety harnesses and helmets, and drove us up the mountain to the first launch platform.

After Greg gave us a quick tutorial on safe operating instructions, we were ready to go. Hooked up to the cable, we run down the ramp and suddenly we're flying over the most spectacular waterfall in the stunning Humber Valley. This is real life IMAX! Other than parachuting, this must be the closest feeling to flying you can get! We go through nine ziplines over the gorge, all the way back to the chalet. This experience is exhilarating, and what's most great about it is that anyone can do it. I need to bring my family to try this one!
