Climbing trees


Last week, my family was on vacation in Lake George. We decided to try out an adventure course which required being cabled into lines and crossing obstacles that ranged from 30 feet to 80 feet off of the ground as well as ziplining down between trees. Some of these obstacles moved as you walked across them including floating logs, cables and swinging poles.

This was challenging and required balance, upper body strength and, at times, teamwork. My 10 year old son came with us (and outdid most of us on the obstacles). This course was very similar to many projects that I am on – filled with obstacles that need to be overcome and the best way to do them is to tackle them one at a time and work together.

Like any good project, once we finished the course and succeeded at our goal we came away with a great sense of pride and happiness to have conquered the obstacles. Now as I write this post a few days later, I am still sore from it so I probably won’t be playing in trees again any time soon!
