We were there just before closing so we didn't get to do as much of the hikes but there were also fewer people at the park. We watched the reenactment of how an old saw mill works, got to do all the activities and a short hike. The suspended bridge was ok but the wall and the zip line were fun!! The climbing wall was great so long as you kept climbing up. Once I paused to look down (bad idea) and was surprised at how high I was
We ran up the hill and clipped into the zip line. One by one, we were whisked away over a small stream. As I was approaching the landing zone I twisted backwards and instead of gliding in gracefully, I kinda did this fumbling backwards run. I loved the thrill, however minor, of semi-flying! Steve's parents had actually bought three additional rides so Chuck gave up his ride so that we could go again. So sweet!
The next day we took the Arnold Ferry over to Mackinac Island (aka Fudge Factory). We rented bikes and rode around the island. Then we jumped on the carriage ride to see more of the inner island areas and hear the narration. We had to stop at the Grand Hotel, which has the longest patio in the world. Technically, you are suppose to be a guest at the hotel to go on the patio but we made exceptions for ourselves. After we took the ferry back to Mackinaw, we bought a few Michigan brews for our own beer sampling party.
