Photo Hunt #215: Action/Steel

01 Mar

When we visited Costa Rica a couple of years ago, the must-do in our list was ziplining thru the cloud forest of Monteverde. Imagine flying through the air (it seems) above the treetops and in the last course was a 1-km ride thru dense fog. Can get scary knowing you’re hanging on dear life and all you see is nothing.

Difficult to take pictures when you’re doing the zipline, but I caught some action when we’re done with our course. A bit far though.

You want more action? The course has 15 cable lines made of steel and 18 platforms. In order to get to the next platform one must hike. The path is paved and snakes throughout the forest and goes up and down.

Zipping way above the treetops, can you see the adventurous one here?

In one of the platforms, I managed to take a shot of the hubby as he’s coming in for a “landing”.

    Great shots. Looks like fun. I wish I hadn’t gotten confused about the theme. Action would have been easier for me to do than auction. I must have not been looking closely enough because when I checked back it was indeed action.

    Wow, nerves of steel is all I can say. Looks awesome but I doubt I would have been able to do it.

    it is such a scary adventure! there were kiddie zip lines here at the parks and i haven’t dared to try! that zip line would truly require nerves of steel.

    WOW! I can’t believe you were able to take pictures while on that. I’d be so busy holding my breath and holding on to the ropes. Wonderful opportunity though…your husband looks very happy! Lovely green beautiful place; I’d love to go to Costa Rica, but I’m not sure of the zip line!
