It has been a very long winter here in Asheville, N.C. and everyone in our city has a healthy dose of cabin fever. Around the breakfast table here at the inn, all present Sunday morning seem to be of the same mind no matter where they hail from.
As I was serving our glorious morning breakfast of Banana Macadamia Pancakes topped with candied nuts, there was discussion regarding “new availabilities” in the outdoor venue scene. Since all of us seem to be most interested in getting outdoors, allow me to supply one more opportunity to “trip the light fantastic-amid the treetops.” These new, sour like our avian friends tours basically provide a birdseye view of white oaks, frazier magnolias, flame azaleas, thick mountain laurel and and rhododendron. Additionally, the tour provides excellent information about the natural environment, animals inhabiting it as well as some local area lore.
American Zipline Canopy Tours: Ok, perhaps the word canopy has taken you aback and you think I am sending you bed shopping. Not so fast. It is canopy- as in tree and is Western North Carolina’s newest, cutting edge adventure designed for speed and not for the faint of heart.
Navitat Canopy Adventures: Soar like and eagle can be more than the words to a song. Moody Cove, a 240 acre wilderness setting houses some of the largest tree specimens in the area and is also the flagship location of Bonsai Design Inc. none other than America’s leading zipline canopy tour designer.
So, take a spin amid the trees suspended only by cables, harnesses and a healthy dose of faith…take in some never before seen sights, enhance your appreciation of Mother nature and her wonders and lastly view a tree from a completely different perspective. It might even change yours!
