On our final full day in New Zealand - a beautiful, sunny one - we decided to devote three hours to sliding down wires tied to trees. Big trees. New Zealand old growth trees. The company, Rotorua Canopy Tours, was professional and very safe. And their guides were hilarious, although I suspect that their teasing backchat would offend the politically correct in many ways.

Here are a few shots of Mary Anne zinging between trees and up to 100 feet above the ground.

BONUS! After zipping, we took a walk along a river used for raft tours. How’s this for a ride?
