Zip Lining Idaho
Geo-Tourism in the Sky
By Mary Syrett
I stand on a platform with my back to the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls. Suited up in a body harness, helmet, and gloves, I’m clipped to a safety cable.
The words of the guide at this moment will forever ring in my head: “Put your hands on the knobs, step to the end of the platform and, when you’re ready . . .” Easing off, I sail along the steel cable through a cluster of treetops and watch as the ground gives way beneath me.
