Today, we visited a small development of houses being built into the side of a mountain with a view of the Pacific. While the views were impressive, the steep roads that had to be traversed to reach the houses discouraged most of us. We saw one lot that had two side-by-side houses available for sale at $399,000.

The hike to the first zip line platform is really not very far, but the hike takes a while due to all the stops we make. The youngsters are so inquisitive. This is such a great group. We are lucky to have them. After some brief instruction on proper technique, we are off and running on the first of eight lines. The longest being about 90 km. These lines are ...
