June 19 - Soaring Treetop Adventures Durango, CO

Wow - what a day!  Thomas, Marjory and Jacob's favorite of the entire trip! We rode the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway along the Animas River past the spot where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid jump off the cliff. (If you watch the YouTube clip, be warned the language is PG-13) Our destination: the Tall Timbers Resort and their one-of-a-kind Soaring Tree Top Adventures zip line tour. We started the day wondering if we could really zipline at all and ended the day begging to try the newest line - 1400 feet across the river at 40 mph (twice as fast as the train by the way).  This was quite a day, just look at the video we took!

Hi Days-
This is the greatest blog ever! We love living vicariously. We've watched the zipline video over and over - love the sound effects!

Yikes! I'm glad it's you guys on the zip line and not me. You guys are doing a killer job with you blog, and it looks like Roger and Thomas had a blast at Graceland. Tell Roger that I left a message on his phone, and that I will try harder to answer my calls... he caught it the one time my phone went dead all week. Everything's great at the house, two cats that haven't run away yet, and a box filling up with mail. Have fun, and I'll keep my cell near by in case you need anything. Oh, there was a card from the church that came in the mail saying that Thomas and Marjorie would be participating as Acolytes this Sunday. I left a message with the church secretary saying that you guys were on a summer vacation. K, check in with me when get a chance.
