Seilpark am Mythen - A New High Ropes Course for us
Today the kids and I visited Seilpark am Mythen, a high ropes course in the canton of Schwyz, 45 minutes' drive from our house. A new one for us. We'd only done the ropes course on Pilatus before. This was quite different and wonderful, too. Much more rural and quiet and wooded, with several streams running through it, over which we zip-lined again and again. TONS of long zip lines through the trees, touching branches...
For the free drop feature on the "sehr schwierig" trail ("very difficult"), since my brother wasn't there to push me off this time (I couldn't bring myself to let go of the platform on Pilatus' version of this either), my son Jason was kind enough to do it. Otherwise I'd still be stuck up there. I was literally heart-poundingly terrified. I am fine with the zip lines across streams, just can't get myself to do the drop where you don't feel the rope catching you until two seconds after you let go into nothingness. Emily went before me, and she can testify I was trembling when I got down. Thanks, Jason, for your very necessary help!
