Another busy day! We attended church this morning then came home for a leisurely breakfast. Then off to Keystone for a bit of shopping and of course the Alpine Slide ride. In case you've not done it, you ride a scenic chairlift up to the summit. Then, you can either chose to ride the chairlift back down, or ride the Alpine Slide which consists of two tracks, each 2000 feet in length, which you descend at your own pace in a wheeled sled that is equipped with a brake. And you can decide if you want to come down on a faster track or a slower track. We all chose the fast one today!! I went first so I could try to capture pics of the others. It was too fun!!!! Only problem is that it's over too soon & we'd all like to ride it 5 more times, lol....

Today we noticed that the Zipline and Rushmore Tramway's Aerial Adventure Park are now open for high-flying fun. On the double zipline guests thrill to a speedy flight from the lofty starting deck down 800 feet through the fresh mountain air. The adjoining Aerial Park is full of sky-high obstacles in a ropes course setting - it's the ultimate Black Hills' nature tour! The park consists of several courses of varying degrees of difficulty, each color-coded to designate its level. Novices and seasoned climbers alike will find seriously stimulating excitement in traversing these treetops. Built above-ground in the pine trees are more than 60 platforms connecting 60-plus fun and increasingly-demanding elements. Included are suspended ladders and bridges, trapezes and tubes, cables, rings and even 5 integrated zip lines.

We watched as participants were fitted into harnesses and shown how to use the gear and safely negotiate the park's elements. Looked pretty scary to me but I think Larry might be up to it! Anyone want to try it with him???
