Wednesday September 4 Canopy Tours NW Camano Island, Washington

Zipped  6 lines through Douglas Fir, Red Cedar and Alder trees. Beautiful! My awesome guides were Travis and Aron!

Met Nancy, who owns the place along with 4 of her siblings! The 200+ acres has been in the family for over 100 years.

I really like that they have nice placards through the course with lots of info. If you can't read the ones I have pictured, they are on their website.

Monday September 2 Treehouse Island Zipline Adventures Silver lake, Washington

While zipping in Skamania, my guide told me about a zipline that had just opened on Silver Lake.

I was able to find info and drove to Treehouse Island.

The owner, Grady, took us by boat across Silver Lake to the Island. We then zipped 5 lines through beautiful trees. We climbed a lot of ladders, but we were always hooked in so even a misstep on the ladder we would not have fallen.

My guide, along with Grady was Chi! 

A very beautiful place and a nice day ziplining.

There were views of Mt St Helens as we were going across the lake. I couldn't see the top because of clouds, but we had a blue sky and nice temps for being out and about!

Sunday September 1 Mt Hood Adventure Park Skibowl

On Sunday morning I arrived at the Adventure park and met Mark, VP of operations. The park has a lot to offer. Malibu racecars, ziplining, bungee jumping, reverse bungee jumping and more.

You can see Mt Hood from anywhere in the park, but seeing it zipling is really awesome!

They have 2 lines which I enjoyed.

I then decided to do the bungee jumping...my first time! Very different jumping off this platform..., but I did it and it was awesome!

I next tried reverse bungee jumping. I laid on the cushions and then an line pulled me up into the air. WOW! really cool. I went upside down and right side up! I liked it!
