Ziplining above the trees
In July, the men of Primrose Wasilla decided to go on an adventure of a lifetime. They wanted to go zip lining at our Matanuska Glacier — a feat nicknamed “1,500 feet of adrenaline.”
When the word got around the community that our brave men would go ride the “Nitro”, my signup sheet was full with staff and residents who wanted to see this exhilarating event take place.
We started the day off with a beautiful 125 mile scenic drive. When we arrived we geared up with our helmets and harnesses, then we ascended the three-story tower to start our flight.
The anticipation got their palms sweating and we all knew the initial drop would get everyone’s heart pumping. The men enjoyed the view of the river and the surrounding mountains almost 200 feet below.
Then the time came to step off and fly down the cable coasting into the forest which was a quarter of a mile long. We ended the day with a picnic in the sunshine.
