Um, not me! But that's what popped into my mind when thinking of a Z letter! Hard to believe we're at the alphabet's end and will start a new round of AlphabeThursday next week!
I knew my son had ziplined (zip lined? zipped? Not sure what's the correct terminology in the world of flying through the air...) so I went thumbing through his FB pics and found a couple and lifted them! (He won't care!)
Back in 2007, Adam went on his first out-of-the-country trip which was also his first by-himself-on-his-own vacation. And what a trip it was! A trek starting and ending in Cancun, Mexico and visiting various places in Central America -- camping, hiking, horseback riding, snorkeling, visiting Mayan ruins, meeting other trekkers from around the world, seeing places he might never have, eating exotic food -- what a great trip for a young man! He was in his late 20's and I was so excited for him to be a part of this trek!
looks like a trekker....
So, out of his zillion and one photos, I found the zip line ones...
note that blue sign with the Mayan temple!

Adam's in the center back
Where they were...
Tikal, in Northern Guatemala
Adam said these was one of his favorite Mayan cities with its "beautiful sunsets and sunrises, Howler monkeys and.... terrible food"
The Grand Plaza
Temple of the Great Jaguar
This is just a tiny part of his trip -- he was gone for a couple of weeks or so and visited Mexico and the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and Belize.
However, this post is supposed to be about zip lining, soooo.....
Have fun on the longest zip line in Texas!! (about an hour from Dallas)
Hmmm, I'm thinking I won't be doing this anytime soon!
How about you?
