To kick off the summer on Memorial Day, Barbara, Michelle B., and I went on a zipline tour through the cypress trees of the Hill Country, about 40 minutes out of town. I'm sure compared to ziplines in Alaska or South America, Cypress Valley Canopy Tours is no big deal, as we were probably never more than 30 feet up. (Okay, it would still hurt a lot if you fell, but I assume the ones in other places are 75-100 feet up or more). Still, none of us had ever been on one before, and it's nearby, so we decided it'd be a fun and different thing to do.
